"[Guillou] has a remarkable grasp of the mind-set of the period and always puts the emphasis where it would be for the people involved at that time, rather than ours. Some readers may find that disorienting, but a capacity for disturbing readers' assumptions is even more a hallmark of good historical fiction than the inclusion of the Knights Templar."
-- Diana Gabaldon, Washington Post

Jan Guillou follows up the highly acclaimed The Road to Jerusalem with the second book in his Knights Templar trilogy. Readers of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, and Stephen Saylor will find many page-turning thrills in The Templar Knight.

The author is Swedish, and brings a different culture to bear on his subject. Interestingly written. Depressing as well (remember that it is rumoured that suicide is the Swedish national sport.... ;-)

These poor Crusaders and Sarecens. No one will accept responsibility for anything that happens. It is either God or Allah who is making them successful or punishing them. Such superstitious people. Both thought they could kill others on the other side and would make it to heaven/paradise. No one ever accepted that possibly stupid decisions or weather conditions had any effect of outcomes.

I love these books. A little hard to get into initially, but then obsessively fantastic to read.

Can't believe I have to wait until fall 2011 for the english translation of the third book!!
