Herman Lindqvist (born 1 April 1943 in Stockholm) is a Swedish journalist who has served as foreign correspondent in many countries and authored a number of popular books on Swedish history.[1] In particular his multiple-volume Historien om Sverige (1992–2002) has become very popular, but has also drawn criticism for allegedly lacking historical accuracy.[2]
