Try "Twilight of the Gods - A Swedish Volunteer in the 11th SS Panzergrenadier Division "Nordland" on the Eastern Front" , it's a memoir.
Cheers,
Filip

The number of books on Swedish Volunteers in Finland would be rather extensive, and mostly in Swedish, but concerning the Swedish SS-Volunteers;

- Hitlers Vikingar; Svenska SS-Officerare (My first Swedish book, biographies on the Swedish SS-Officers)
- Svenskar i Waffen-SS: Hitlers Svenska Soldater (My second Swedish book, biographies on the Swedish SS-NCO:s)
- Hitlers Swedes: a History of the Swedish volunteers in the Waffen-SS
- Hitleri Rootslased; Estonian version of Hitlers Swedes. Basically the same book, but with more information on the Estonian-Swedes but also an index of the Swedish volunteers.
- Såsom en brinnande eld, (Torkel Ivarsson); a short but rather interesting book on the life and death of Erik Dahlin (KIA - Rgt. "Nordland" 1942).
- Utan Ånger; A rather OK book on the Swedish NCO Gustaf Ekström; the authors could have credited me for the photo which they used on the front page though...

When it comes to books on Swedish national socialism I would turn to the books by Helene Lööw, especially "Nazismen i Sverige 1924-1979". Great book!
