Jörgen Hjerdt works as a screenwriter, novelist, and playwright. He has written both original work and adaptations for the stage and the screen, amongst others the Stockholm City Theatre and the Royal Dramatic Theatre.

Jörgen has created the acclaimed original political thriller series Blue Eyes (Blå ögon), for SVT and the thriller series STHLM Requiem for Tv4/ZDF.  In 2015 his debut novel Liberated (Befriad) was published at Weyler and received glowing reviews. In 2022 his audio series that takes place around the murder of Swedish foreign ministers Anna Lindh, premiered.

Jörgen often works with stories of political edge or with sensitive complicated issues. His debut novel is a story told in magic realism about depression and mental illness and its consequences for the close family. Blue Eyes deals with fascism in our time and his stage plays have dealt with sexual assaults and the world of dirt and cleaning. The latest year he has written comedy though, so everything can and will change in terms of what interest him.

Through the years Jörgen have a long collaboration with screenwriter/novelist Pauline Wolff, forming a dynamic duo.
