Anna Jansson presents the Emil Wern series (in Swedish)

Anna Jansson was born and raised in Visby, and now lives in Örebro with her family. Before becoming a full-time writer, Anna Jansson worked as a nurse for many years. It has inspired her to write about people’s relationship to life and death, and she always add ethical dilemmas into her stories.

Anna Jansson is one of Sweden´s most popular crime writers. Since the debut with The Speachless God in 2000 her novels about the energetic and good-hearted Police inspector Maria Wern have sold over 4 million copies and have been translated into sixteen languages. The film and television series starring acclaimed Swedish actress Eva Röse have made a success in Sweden and Germany and has aired in over 20 countries across Europe as well as in the US.

With the  charming stories about the warm-hearted hairdresser and matchmaker Angelika Lagermark, also known as The Goddess of Fate, Anna Jansson entertains readers also in the feel-good genre while writing about life and death, love and longing for love.

For the younger readers, Anna Jansson has created a children’s book series about the son of Maria Wern, 11-year-old Emil Wern, who started his own detective agency and solves mysteries.

In Autumn 2019 Maria Wern Anna Jansson turns to her hometown Örebro, and starts a new series, which will run parallel with Maria Wern. Daughter Missing, is the first book in the Kristoffer Bark-series, where the readers will get to know a new colourful work group within the police department investigating cold cases. Each one with their own history, defaults and strengths. Daughter Missing is a captivating crime thriller about a parent´s worst nightmare.

Örebro is a completely different environment from the sunny Gotland we find in the Maria Wern books. However, the readers will recognize Anna Jansson’s talent in mastering both hair-raising crimes and the inner lives of her beloved characters. The Kristoffer Bark series is a bit darker in the tone but be sure her trademark is still there – Anna Jansson cares, and take care of her characters, and she is a fantastic storyteller.

Reader’s comments

“A book you are hooked at from chapter one, written with humor, accuracy and the final is unexpected, a really good book!”

“Dear Mrs Jansson, I am writing to you to let you know how much I enjoy every single book written by you that I’ve read. I have always liked this kind of literature, and that is the reason because I bought all the collection written by the great Agatha Christie (translated into Spanish), and I have to confess that after reading yours, I have enjoyed them as much as the ones by Christie! In some ways they are quite similar! That must be a great honour for you, as it means you have a wonderful talent! Indeed, that’s right!”

“I think the book was good because it was a lot of excitement and I could not stop reading.” / Emil Wern reader

“It was like many mysteries in one. When are we reading the next book in the series?” / teacher who read The Mail Thief out loud in class

“It’s really a pleasure to meet Angelika again. It’s harmless, humoristic, a bit suspenseful and funny. And Anna Jansson is really good in building her characters.”  / mother-in-law unlimited reader
