Today Johan Åsard releases today his book "Drottningens hemlighet"
New book accuses Silvia for falsification of history
Now starts the next round in the dramatic deal about Queen Silvia's father's Nazi past.
On Thursday the book "Drottningens hemlighet ("The Queen's secret") will be released, it is said to reveal new information about Walther Sommerlath and how the Queen personally through her secret network should have tried to influence critical voices.
- Her own investigation is verging on the falsification of history, says the book's author Johan Åsard, former director of "Kalla Fakta" that led television program review of the case.
Åsard describes also how the queen tried to exert pressure with the help of influential contacts, both in Sweden and abroad. She wrote to people in her network. For example, to Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former president of Brazil, about the Brazilian scholar Eva Blay who expressed criticism of her father in "Kalla Fakta".
"I was very glad to get your e-mail and that you have tried to talk to Mrs Blay, thank you so much!" Silvia writes in an email to Cardoso, quoted in the book.
According to Eva Blay several other people tried to "push" her on behalf of Silvia. Among them, James Wolfensohn, former head of the World Bank, and a former mayor of Rio de Janeiro.
Åsard notes that before "Kalla Fakta" examination in 2010 it was very quiet in the Swedish media about Walther Sommerlaths background. He denied in 1976 on direct question from Expressen's Ulf Nilson that he had been a member of the Nazi party. Only in 2002 could the historian Mats Deland reveal in the newspaper Arbetaren that the queen's father had joined the German Nazi party in 1934 and gained membership card number 3592030.
Expressen's Diamant Salihu met last night Queen Silvia when she attended the Childhood Autumn Dinner at Confidencen. But the Queen refused to comment on the allegations in Johan Åsards book. Bertil Ternert came five minutes before the Queen to answer questions.

How she tried to whitewash her dad
Queen Silvia has devoted years to exonerate her father's dark Nazi history.
In a new book reveals journalist Johan Åsard how the Queen sent letters to ex-president in Brazil and around 20 business leaders.
- The aim was to put pressure and get sympathies to her father's favor, saying Åsard.
The book also disclosed that she contacted several peaks of Swedish businesses, including Carl -Johan Bonnier, Chairman of the Bonnier Group. When Aftonbladet took a contact to Bonnier he chooses not to comment on the issue.
- The letters show how the Queen acted secretly to spread her own image of her dad. She wants sympathy, influence and exerts pressure on various people, says Johan Åsard.
