We are excited to represent the Swedish crime writer Malin Thunberg Schunke worldwide!

Her debut novel ETT HÖGRE SYFTE (A HIGHER PURPOSE) awarded „Best Debut Novel of the Year 2019“ by The Swedish Crime Academy.

Malin Thunberg Schunke’s most recent title BLIND VREDE (BLIND FURY, May 2022) is a dramatic and multi-faceted thriller about the explosive anger hidden just below the surface of society: A series of horrifically violent crimes connected to protest marches and demonstrations spread fear among the public and concern among the police. A certain symbol starts appearing at crime scenes all over Europe, suggesting that an international group of radical activists might be at work … At Eurojust, the EU Agency for Criminal Justice in The Hague, an investigation team is appointed with Swedish prosecutor Esther Edh at the helm. The tracks soon lead to an animal rights organisation and a run-down country estate in southern Sweden, as well as to right-wing extremists in Germany and Denmark. As the international team of specialists is starting to connect the dots, a breathless battle against the clock begins in order to prevent more acts of violence.
