About the Author:

John-Henri Holmberg is the Edgar Award-nominated coauthor of the 2011 book The Tattooed Girl, about the Millenium novels and their author, Stieg Larsson, who was a personal friend. He has written books on science fiction, psychological thrillers, adult fantasy fiction, and film, and lectured on popular fiction, particularly crime and science fiction. For more than fifteen years he reviewed crime for Sweden's largest daily newspaper, which gained him the Jan Broberg Excellence in Criticism award, as well as election to the Swedish Crime Fiction Academy. He is now a full-time writer, translator, and editor, living with his family on the southern coast of Sweden.

Review:

"A wonderful collection of beautiful Nordic noir with Stieg Larsson as the cherry on top." Camilla Lackberg

A fine anthology . . . [and] editor Holmberg gives an excellent overview of Swedish crime fiction in his introduction.”—Mystery Scene

Gripping. . . . These unsettlingly dark tales reaffirm the dominance of Swedish writers with original crime fiction.” Sun (UK)

Entertaining.” Times (UK)
