Swedish writer Viveca Sten has sold nearly four million copies of her enormously popular Sandhamn Murders series. In 2015, her eighth novel, the hugely successful I sanningens namn (In the name of truth), was published in Sweden and cemented her place as one of the country's most popular authors. Her Sandhamn Murders novels continue to top the bestseller charts and have been made into a successful Swedish-language TV miniseries, which has been broadcast around the world to forty million viewers. Sten lives in Stockholm with her husband and three children, but she prefers to spend her time visiting Sandhamn to write and vacation with her family.
