THE CHRISTMAS THIEF (Julklappstjuven)
Illustrations by Mimmi Tollerup
Emil Wern lives in Visby. In his yard there is an old yellow market stand where he has his detective bureau. And Visby really needs a detective bureau, because it is full of suspicious people. Together with his little sister Linda and the pretty stupid dog Molly, Emil solves some really tricky mysteries.
It is the day before Christmas Eve. The Holiday lights are glowing, it smells wonderfully clean in the whole house, and shortly it is time to make ginger bread snaps and wrap the gifts. Emil has a warm Christmas feeling inside. But soon the peace is disturbed. The police have had several reports from upset families. A thief, dressed as Santa has broken in to homes and stolen their Christmas gifts. When Emil’s neighbour’s patio door is found broken, Emil takes matters into his own hands. This is a case for The Emil Wern Detective Bureau.
The Christmas Thief is the twelfth book about eleven year old Emil Wern and his detective bureau.
