It's 1808 and Sweden is at war with Russia. The war is not going well. On land, the Swedish army is retreating continuously and all that stands between the Russians and the Swedish mainland are the gunboats of the inshore fleet. The sea war amongst the islands of the Finnish and Swedish archipelagos is a special kind of war, fought in open boats by badly equipped men without proper training. Fighting the weather as much as the Russians, Lieutenant Johan Kuhlin commands a small squadron of three gunboats on special duty. During the short and wet summer, he learns that an independent command isn't all glory and that spies can be more dangerous than Russian guns.
Miss Anna's Frigate
In the early months of 1809 a British frigate is trapped in the ice of the Baltic Sea. While Sweden's war against Russia continues and Stockholm itself is threatened by invasion, several groups plot against the unsucessful king.
Female spy and adventuress Anna Wetterstrand had hoped for a quiet winter together with her beloved Eric. But now the unforeseen events force her to take action and question her loyalties and love. Will she be able to save the king - and herself?
