Penny | 22 comments I'm trying to find a novel I read in the late 1970s about resistance fighters in occupied Denmark in WWII. The lead character is named Arne and his friend is Nils or Nels or something like that. The only specific scene I remember from the book is when the Nazi's catch a glimpse of a red headed man in some act of sabotage, they round up all the read headed men in the town, including Arne, and interrogate them all.

I've tried search engines but all I come up with is newer books, and I know it was about 1978 when I read this one. I think it was a new-ish book at the time, but it could possibly be older.

Thank you for any ideas you may have.

Checking Google books gives hits for characters named Arne and Niels, and the SS rounding up men with red hair.
