Martin Widmark was born in 1961 in Sweden and today lives in Stockholm with his family. He has worked as a middle school instructor and a Swedish teacher for immigrants, but he is now a full-time children's book author. Over his career, he has also written several text books. He is fascinated by life's little oddities and anything unique, from food and music to languages and people.
Widmark is considered a literary giant of contemporary children's fiction in Sweden. Both his Nelly Rapp and Lasse Majas (translated to Jerry Maya) series are consistently on the best seller lists and have received critical acclaim. His books have been translated into more than 20 languages.
The books in The Whodunit Detective Agency series are set in the charming little town of Pleasant Valley. It’s the kind of close-knit community where nearly everyone knows one another. The town and characters are all fictional, of course . . . or are they?
The main characters, Jerry and Maya, are classmates and close friends who run a small detective agency together.
