Literary Birthday - 31 October - Mari Jungstedt

Happy Birthday, Mari Jungstedt, born 31 October 1962

Three Quotes

  1. Gotland is perfect as a crime scene because it’s an island and you have this kind of closed atmosphere. You have the coast line like a circle around you.
  2. I had three thoughts in my mind when I started my first attempt to write a book – I wanted it to be a crime novel,  I wanted it to take place on Gotland and I wanted it to be about something more than “just” a suspenseful crime story – I wanted to tell something else, some human problem that people can relate to and find interesting, I wanted  to have a depth in the story.
  3. I chose to write a crime novel because I have always loved reading them myself. Even during my childhood I always loved suspenseful stories and mysteries. 

Jungstedt is a Swedish popular crime fiction author of 11 novels. Six titles have been the basis for Swedish movies.
