Autobiography for Quais du Polar

I write character-driven crime stories that takes place in the small village of Sweden where I grew up. I used to be a teacher, but my new profession as an author gives me more time to explore my largest  interests in life: storytelling, language and psychology.


Favorite “noir”

livre : The Silver Road, Stina Jackson

film : I´m not a film/serie-person, but I enjoyed the first season of True detective by Nic Pizzolatto.

auteur : When it comes to writers, I love Sylvia Plath, Lucia Berlin, and Alice Munro. All of them are noir in there own kind of ways.
