2021 – Nominated for Debutant of the year, Crimetime Award
Anna Breitholtz Monsén moved from Stockholm’s inner city to Skåne in the south of Sweden to make a lifelong dream come true.
She had worked as a marketing executive for several years but she had also read hundreds of detective stories and now she wanted to write a detective story that she herself would appreciate, with both humor and dark undertones. Preferably with wayward characters who don’t follow a set path. It was the starting point for the series about Lina Lantz. Today she works as a writer and digital strategist and lives with her family in Ängelholm, near the beach.
Words from the book market
“A trend-sensitive combination of excitement and feelgood that skilfully connects the present with the 80s. This is a debut of grit and charm, as well as a well-balanced mix of drama and entertainment. We like the colorful characters and look forward to following them in the series we feel confident that the author laid a solid foundation for with this book.”
Motivation for the CRIMETIME AWARD nomination / SWE
”Congratulations – we have a new Crime Queen!”
“Stranden is a wonderful feelgood thriller that mixes the investigation of the old and the fresh murders, the secrets of the small town and the relaxed everyday life of the cat hotel. And it’s nice to read about a female protagonist who faithfully runs the taste of blood in her mouth but in return she eats only chips or cake and champagne for dinner – without the self-adjustment that female protagonists usually comment on.”
