Ingrid Ylva blev en legend redan i sin livstid vid mitten av 1200-talet. Hon var en av flera starka änkor som styrde riket efter de blodiga segrarna mot Danmark. Om henne sades att hon var trollkunnig och att så länge hon höll sitt huvud högt skulle intet ont drabba folkungaätten.

Med järnvilja fostrade hon sina söner i en skoningslös tid där den starkares rätt var den enda

I love these books. Read them so many times! This one isn't about Arn and it's not as lovely, but more historical and really a must-read if you liked the triology.

-La Historia es tan rica que siempre ofrece escenarios menos trillados a los novelistas -.

Género. Novela histórica.

Lo que nos cuenta. Narración novelada de los acontecimientos que llevaron a consolidar la base de lo que hoy es Suecia mediante la suma de reinos más regionales, con el personaje histórico Birger Jarl como hilo conductor.

Taking into account that I have yet to read Stieg Larsson's "Millenium', as of now I brand Guillou my favourite Scandinavian auhtor and one of my all-time favourite authors.
I LOVED every bit,every page of Arn's trilogy and I'm glad to say that this forth novel lived well beyond my expectations.
I strongly reccomend all 4 books,read chronologically, to anybody who loves historical novels. You won't be disappoined!

Jan Guilloun Temppeliritari-trilogia on tyylikkäästi kirjoitettu historiallinen romaanisarja, jonka kruununa on yksi tämän kirjallisuustyylin hienoimmista ja mielenkiintoisimmista päähenkilöistä, Arn. Guillou kirjoitti tälle trilogialle yhden itsenäisen jatko-osan, joka kertoo ajasta Arnin jälkeen. Päähenkilönä tarinassa on Arnin lapsenlapsi, Birger Jarli. Kirja on Birgerin kasvutarina, joka väistämättä jää Arnin vastaavaan verrattuna kapeammaksi, koska hahmona Birger ei ole niin monisyinen ja t ...more

Arven efter Arn er en selvstændig efterfølger til Jan Guillou's triologi om den svenske tempelridder Arn.

Hovedpersonen i Arven efter Arn er Arn's barnebarn Birger. Bogen starter, hvor den sidste bog i triologien slutter. Folkungerne har deltaget i et stort slag, og har mistet mange medlemmer af ætten. Kongen sidder svagt i troen, borgerkrige truer, og sveerne og folkungerne kæmper om magten.

Birger er på dette tidspunkt en ung mand på ca. 18 år. Han er uddannet kriger fra Forsvik, Folkungernes

L'ultimo capitolo della saga del Templare è un'ulteriore opportunità per continuare ad apprezzare Jan Guillou, la sua scrittura e la sua inventiva e ad amare i protagonisti del suo racconto, tra insidie politiche e tradimenti, guerre e duelli, odi e amori. Peccato che la lettura di questa grandiosa saga medievale abbia ridimensionato i miei favori nei confronti di altri scrittori che scrivono romanzi ambientati nel medioevo come Bernard Cornwell o Conn Iggudden che fino ad oggi avevo ritenuto gr ...more

Först när jag läste den här boken tyckte jag den var ordentligt tråkig, förmodligen för att ha läst Arn-trilogin några gånger för mycket och totalt fastnat för den fantastiske Arn. När han inte fanns med blev boken lite sämre i mina ögon. Efter att ha gett den en ny chans tyckte jag mycket bättre om den. Boken är en av de bästa historiska böcker jag läst där det inte är handlingen som är viktig utan mer historian bakom den. Däremot är den lite trög i början vilket är lite av ett kännetecken för ...more

Interessant og spændende læsning med forfatterens frie tolkning af svensk historie, om Birger Jarls dannelse af Sverige. Som i den foregående triologi om Arn, er det lidt af en underlig oplevelse at læse om de slag, hvor danskerne var fjenden.

Recommends it for: anyone with the slightest interest in history
Great book - though not as great as the three books prior to this one. It does work on it's own premises though, so theoreticly you don't have to have read the three first books in the series. I would, however, recommend to do so.

Millor que el tercer, igual que el primer i casi tan bo com el segon, un llibràs que m'ha fet aprendre. reflexionar i disfrutar. Si us agrada la literatura històrica amb apunts marcials, us encantarà.

Jag ville verkligen att epilogen skulle vara lika bra som de tidigare böckerna, men tyvärr tog det mig nästan ett halvt år att orka läsa boken och det berättar nog i sig...

Best part of the book might be that it's the last in the series. I still like the historic description, but the story line really doesn't keep up through this volume.

Jag vill gilla dessa böcker men tyvärr är det lite för trögt för mig (och kanske lite för mycket historia).
