Johan Theorin Book and Novel

Johan Theorin - Author


Throughout his life, Johan Theorin has been a regular visitor to the Baltic island of Oland. His mother’s family – sailors, fishermen and farmers - have lived there for centuries, nurturing the island’s rich legacy of strange tales and folklore. A journalist by profession, Johan now lives in Gothenburg. He is currently working on his second novel, and is planning a quartet of novels all set on Oland.

Echoes from the Dead (originally published in Sweden as Skumtimmen) is Johan’s first novel. In 2007 it was voted Best First Crime Novel by the authors and critics of the Swedish Academy of Crime, and it has been sold in sixteen countries. His second novel, The Darkest Room, (in Swedish Nattfak) was voted the Best Swedish Crime Novel of 2008.

If you like Johan Theorin you might also like to read books by Hakan Nesser, Mari Jungstedt and Asa Larsson.
