To English Speaking Readers

I am the author of a number of non-fiction books, among them three books on the murder of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme. The third one, Konspiration Olof Palme ("The Olof Palme Conspiracy") was published in September 2015. In that book I go a step further regarding the most important questions concerning the murder - who and why?

My first book on the Palme case, Mörkläggning - statsmakten och Palmemordet ("Blackout - the Government and the Palme Murder"), was published in 1997. It is one of the most well known works on the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme. It received the Golden Shovel, the Swedish prize för investigative journalism. The main focus on this first Palme book is the story about how the police, the prosecutors and the government botched the investigation during the first years. My conclusion is that the most important reason for that failure was that the authorities simply were afraid of the truth.

A large part of the book describes the real story behind the Ebbe Carlsson affair, a political scandal in the late eighties that was strongly related to the Palme murder.

More recently, in 2010, I published a second book on the same subject, Mordgåtan Olof Palme ("Olof Palme - a Murder Mystery"). The book critically examined the allegations that the alcoholic and small-time criminal Christer Pettersson was the perpetrator of the Palme murder.

In my new book, Konspiration Olof Palme, I place the murder in the international Cold War context and show the threads to powerful and determined enemies of the Swedish Prime Minister.

In 2014 my first crime novel was published in Swedish. It is called Maktens mörka korridorer, ("The Dark Hallways of Power").

I have also written non-fiction books dealing with subjects as the September 11 terror attacks, organized crime, fraud, espionage and conspiracies. As yet none of my books are available in English.
