The Loewenskoeld Ring (1925) is the first volume of the trilogy considered to have been Selma Lagerloef's last work of prose fiction. Set in the Swedish province of Varmland in the eighteenth century, the narrative traces the consequences of the theft of General Loewenskoeld's ring from his coffin, and develops into a disturbing tale of revenge from beyond the grave.

It is also a tale about decisive women. The narrative twists and the foregrounding of alternative interpretations confront the reader with a pervasive sense of ambiguity.

Along with the narrative technique, the spell of the ring extends into the two subsequent volumes, Charlotte Loewenskoeld (1925) and Anna Svard (1928).
