More star writers ready for the Sigtuna Literature Festival

By on March 1, 2018

The acclaimed Swedish tension writers Anders Roslund, Kristina Ohlsson, Christoffer Carlsson, Pascal Engman, Per Schlingmann and Kristina Appelqvist are now also ready for the Sigtuna Literature Festival 2018.

– We are very proud of our tension writers and happy that so many of them choose to come to Sigtuna. We know that thrill novels attract many readers and this will be a golden opportunity for them to meet their favorite writers, said Ann-Marie Skarp, CEO of Piratförlaget.

To the Sigtuna Literature Festival comes Anders Roslund, who launches his new book the thriller Tre timmar during the festival. The book is an independent continuation of Tre sekunder and Tre timmar.

– Being able to come back to the Sigtuna Literature Festival feels so good – I have visited most of the book festivals in Europe today, and Sigtuna is one of the most professional. And in addition to being able to do it in a new writer, with a newly published book that will only be a couple of days old and now meet with its readers for the first time, it will be as exciting to me as for Tre timmar, says Anders Roslund.

A total of twenty authors participate in the festival, which will take place on May 5th. Previously, it is clear that the following authors participate; Jan Guillou, Anders Roslund, Martina Haag, Mikael Niemi, Pija Lindenbaum, Marie-Louise Ekman, Bea Uusma and Uje Brandelius.

The program as a whole will be released in the latter part of March. Read more about all contributing authors at and
