She has a Master's Degree in Film Studies. Mats Strandberg is journalist and a regular columnist for Sweden's biggest evening newspaper Aftonbladet. The organization Sveriges Tidskrifter (Sweden's Newspapers and Magazines) awarded him the title Columnist of the Year in 2004. In 2008, Sara B. Elfgren met Mats Strandberg. They quickly realized that they shared a passion for supernatural stories about young adults. Soon the idea to write together was born. In August 2009 they began working on what would become the novel The Circle with its two sequels."
The Circle is a gift for those of us who love Buffy. It
is impossible to put down and I cannot wait for 2012 when the
sequel, Fire, is released * QX *
You long for the sequel even before you have finished the book. -- National Swedish newspaper * Eskilstuna Kuriren *
What a stunning novel. Raw, real, smart, very thrilling and very, very wicked. The Circle is Twilight by way of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo * Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians *
I have never read a novel for adults that so smoothly reconciles the literary temperaments as The Circle does... This is going to be BIG -- National Swedish newspaper * Dagens Nyheter *
Let's not call The Circle Sweden's most talked-about young adult novel right now, but simply Sweden's most famous book right now. -- National Swedish newspaper * Goeteborgsposten *
