From Per Wahloo - co-author with his wife, Maj Sjowall, of the internationally bestselling Martin Beck series of mysteries - comes a political satire, told as a court transcript, about the court-martial of a general gone rogue.

Time: the not too distant future. Place: a small island in the temperate zone. Scene: air-force headquarters. Corporal Edwin Velder is on trial for his life--accused of acts against the military, government, and society. As the proceedings unfold, we learn of a country's descent into political tyranny--a civil war erupted in the face of a secret armed force bringing the current generals to power. The military tribunal forces Velder to reconstruct the events, battles, and final defeat of the island rebellion. As the inevitable verdict is pronounced, Velder's testimony just might bring to bear yet another political revolution.
