Hi and welcome to my homepage. I write in Swedish and English, for children, teenagers and adults. My latest Swedish novel, The Ballad of Solomon's Bend, was published in September 2019. My English novel The Prince of Soul and The Lighthouse won the 2013 Sir Julius Vogel Award for best youth novel and has been translated into several languages.

I was born in 1971 and grew up in Ludvika, a small city in the Dalecarlia region of Sweden. Together with my wife and our two children I’ve lived for a short period of time in Rwanda, and for several years in New Zealand. Since a few years back we live in Gävle, Sweden.

I am a pharmacist with a master’s degree in journalism. In my spare time I enjoy skiing and trekking with my family, playing music or TV games, and sitting in our little boat on the ocean, thinking about new books that I want to write.

Besides books I’ve written radio manuscripts for Swedish national and regional radio, and humour columns for the two national newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet.

A few years back I was engaged as a script writer for an international comic about medicines and how to use them in a safe way. The comic is published by The Uppsala Monitoring Centre. The first issue is about fake medicines and the second deals with antibiotic resistance.

When I’m not writing, I work for Consupedia, a company aiming to nudge everyone towards a more sustainable food system. Consupedia has created the world's largest and most detailed database on how food affects the climate, environment, health and social justice. Swedish consumers can use the Consupedia app to find out and compare how sustainable different food products really are.
