Description

Ever since Stieg Larsson shone a light on the brilliance of Swedish crime writing with his acclaimed and bestselling Millennium trilogy, readers around the world have sought out and devoured the crime fiction of his countrymen (and women), many of whom have proved to be some of the greatest masters of the genre. In this landmark and unique publication, Sweden’s most distinguished and best-loved crime writers have contributed stories to an anthology that promises to thrill even the most jaded mystery reader.

Containing seventeen stories, all never before published in English, A Darker Shade of Sweden illuminates the shadow side of this beguiling country as never before, and promises to be among the most highly anticipated crime fiction of the season.

About the Author

JOHN-HENRI HOLMBERG is the Edgar-nominated co-author of the 2011 book Secrets of the Tattooed Girl, about the Millennium novels and their author, Stieg Larsson, who was a personal friend. After taking a degree in literature and philosophy at the universities in Uppsala and Stockholm, he has worked as a writer, translator, anthologist, and magazine and book editor and as a publisher. He has written books on science fiction, psychological thrillers, adult fantasy fiction and movies, and lectured on popular fiction, particularly crime and science fiction. For more than fifteen years he reviewed crime fiction for southern 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.
