Anna Svärd is a 1928 novel by the Swedish writer Selma Lagerlöf. It is the last installment in Lagerlöf's Ring trilogy; it was preceded by The Löwensköld Ring and Charlotte Löwensköld.[1]

Plot[edit]

Karl-Artur like most of the priest loves God deeply, but he doesn´t have much people skills. In this part of the series he gets involved with Anna Svärd, an indecisive sales agent. After breaking up abruptly with Charlotte, Karl's only intentions are to find a woman to help him pay his bill and forget about poverty for good. On the other hand, Anna is eager to marry anyone to have a better life. But the unimaginable occurs - Thea's return gives the story a grotesque spin.
