"Lars Brink's book […] gives an interesting insight into how the Wallenberg case was handled by the media, which in turn affected, amongst others, politicians and diplomats."
Mats Dahlberg in a review in Nya Wermlands-Tidningen.
"Brink's new book includes a summary in English and is thus not only of interest for Swedish readers. […] this is a book that should appeal not only to researchers at universities and institutions, but also to journalists and others. Brink's book contains a credible and important analysis of how the press in Sweden, including Swedish communist papers, covered Raoul Wallenberg during the classic Cold War years."
Author and military historian Lars Gyllenhaal, in a review on his blog.
"Lars Brink is very familiar with the subject [of the Wallenberg case] after many years of studies."
