Set in northwest Sweden in the 16th century, Selma Lagerlof's The Treasure is an intricately plotted and very compelling tale of murder, long-delayed justice, and revenge. One night, a group of rowdy escaped prisoners attacks and plunders a clergyman's home, leaving behind a lone survivor, the family's adopted daughter Elsalill. She vows to punish the murderers—and receives assistance and support from a very unlikely source.
