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.
Christmas is coming up and Emil and his friends have started to think about what gifts could show up under the tree. But then the one thing that cannot happen happens: someone steals Ubbe’s mother’s wallet! She loses all her Christmas money when she is in the toy store. Luckily Emil is there right away and can start collecting finger prints. Soon he has gathered three suspects, now all that is left is to discover who the pickpocket is!

“Anna Jansson writes with easy hand, addresses things like friendship, and not being to quick to judge people, while she adds excitement. A good children’s detective novel, that is.”
