Innovative stories for stretch readers
Crime & thrillers
Contemporary. Smart. Sharp. Crisp. Exciting. Entertaining.
These are words that recur in reviews from critics and readers when they describe Peter Stjernström’s authorship.
The stories have a high tempo with focus on elaborate dramaturgy, effective turning points and vibrant characterization. It’s intriguing from beginning to end. The protagonists are complex individuals and at any time unexpected perspective shifts may occur. When reading you can never be 100 percent certain if the events in the books could happen in real life or if they’re pure fantasies. These are books for stretch readers who like to be entertained and enriched.
A number of years ago Peter Stjernström gave up a career in the finance industry to explore his own creativity, to work professionally with texts and develop his skills as an entrepreneur. His first novel, Enn Mann, was released in 2003. The novel The Best Book in the World (Världens bästa bok) from 2011 is translated to eight languages and is published for example in the UK.
