Leif GW Persson has chronicled the political and social development of modern Swedish society in his award-winning novels for more than three decades. He has served as an adviser to the Swedish ministry of justice and is Sweden's most renowned psychological profiler. A professor at the Swedish National Police Board, he is considered the country's foremost expert on crime.
Praise for Persson's Story of a Crime trilogy: "This may be just what fans of Jo Nesbo and Stieg Larsson are looking for." --Booklist (starred review) "Exceptional.... Persson writes with a sure hand and sharp insight.... Fans of Scandinavian crime fiction will eat it up." --Library Journal "Laced with irony and satire...Persson does a fine job of pitting one desperate soul against another in a philosophically charged tale worthy of Ingmar Bergman--but with lots more guns." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
