Philip Birk was born in 1993 and studies at Uppsala University. His debut Thriller »Kyldygnet« is the start to a series starring master thief Tom Grip, published by Historiska Media. Philip’s grandfather, who was the director of the Randers Art Museum, known for displaying the painting “Interiør” by Vilhelm Hammershøi, indirectly inspired him to write this story.

The sequel »Frostnatt« was published in Sweden in 2019.

The German Publishing House Europa Verlag published the book as »Operation Peruggia« in early 2019 and will continue on with the series.
