NEW YORK, NY -- Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and George Venizelos, the Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation ("FBI") announced the return to the National Library of Sweden of two antique books that were stolen from the Library in the 1990s.
