Cilla and Rolf Börjlind, Sweden’s most praised script writers for crime and thrillers, and bestselling authors. Spring Tide, the first book in the series about Olivia Rönning and Tom Stilton, has been sold to over 30 countries.
Their books are characterized by charismatic characters and the stories depicture Sweden, full of social conflicts. The routine from script writing is reflected in the ability to create tension and twisted plots. Everything is tied together, elegantly and sometimes surprising. In the Börjlind world people are driven by a passion for social justice. Another characteristic is the typical Börjlind surrealistic humor.
This humor is most certainly present in the stand alone novel called The Astonishing Tale of Georg von Nothing launched in 2022. A funny and warm story where the authors’ big hearts are given free rein.
The Spring Tide series first aired on Swedish television 2016 and new seasons are being developed. The author’s extensive experience include writing 26 Martin Beck-films.

“Authors Cilla and Rolf Börjlind know how to build a story, and Olivia Rönning and Tom Stilton are two wonderful characters who have captivated the Dutch readers from the moment they got introduced in Springtide. And they – and the series – become more popular with each book, something that is not so common anymore these days. Combined with the intelligent storylines, excellent pacing and dialogue, this has proven to be our most successful crime series to come out of Sweden in recent years.”
