Smashwords book reviews by Howard Robins

  • Julian Assange in Sweden on Dec. 07, 2012

    I read this interesting book. It appears to be a factual account of some very questionable activities on the part of the Swedish authorities in their treatment of Julian Assange, coinciding with visits to Sweden by important American officials. The book consists of excerpts from original sources, pieced together chronologically, which make dry but convincing reading. The main components are excerpts from police interrogations of Julian Assange, the two complainants, and a number of witnesses. Also, excerpts from the Swedish media, including the newspapers Expressen, Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Juridik, TV, radio, the Swedish Prosecution Authority, web sites such as Rixstep, blogs, the Flashback discussion thread, police memos, You Tube and some English language sources. It is unfortunate that the book was not published earlier than two years after the events it describes, but understandably the work of researching and above all translating must have been colossal, which perhaps explains the delay. The conclusion I draw from reading the book is that Julian Assange was framed and the events he is accused of never happened.
