** It's elaborated on in the film. [[spoiler:Jossi]] [[DefectorFromDecadence ''wants out'']]. The brand is there to make sure he stays loyal because their only chance of surviving long-term is making sure Tengil wins. The chest is a body part most people cover entirely in public (it's not like Sofia was going to rip his shirt off in public if she hadn't known anything), so he probably would have been alright until after the invasion.

*** FlipFlopOfGod as Astrid Lindgren also once said that most of the book is Skorpan's escapist fantasies from his sickbed, until he [[KilledOffForReal dies in the real world]] when they [[DyingDream go to Nangilima]]. (And then she said, "But if any of you ever tell this to your children, I will [[NeverMessWithGranny beat you until you die]].")

This book, and the movie that was based on it, are perfect examples of how TropesAreNotBad. Many tropes, including some of the [[DeadHorseTrope worst tropes around]], are played straight to absurdum, yet both the book and the movie are awesome and gripping - partly due to the simplicity of the story, but mostly because of Lindgren's incredible storytelling.

** When you consider that the pass word is "All power to Tengil, our liberator", just consider what Tengil himself was meant to liberate them from in the first place. Orvar is, of course, another liberator (for honest this time - we believe).

* DawsonCasting: The 13-year-old Jonatan Lionheart is played by Staffan Götestam, who was 25 during the production. However, this might be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] since the film makers were [[AvertedTrope averting]] the MostWritersAreAdults trope.
** Most likely Jonatan is supposed to be only three or four years older in the movie than he is in the book. Götestam was still a lot older than his character, but his performance is so good that you really don't mind.
