Thriller novelist based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Author of Seared, The Rival and Skinless.
I´m doing the last check on Hudlös before print.
I wrote the first chapter in 2012, but then came another book, The Rival, in between.
I still yearn for the hammock and my pile of books I intend to read this summer.
I´m editing and have not found the peace to read anything else but my own script. But - all this books I´ve bought this winter and spring is on my to-read-list. Looking forward to it! Me, the hammock and all the books.
So, my birthday was nice. I got my pancakes, a red rose, and then I cleaned my desk (my book is finished, it´s time to make some space for new notes) and after that I made pizza for the family. And today is a new day.
One thing I brooded on: my naprapath asked me to put on shorts for next weeks appointment, because there will be stretching, bending and kneading .
I am nearly 43 years old - SHORTS ?
Where can I even buy this things?
Well, I was right. It is ITBS.
So no running for me next 8 or so weeks.
Anyway - I´m having my e-book for free today (and tomorrow, yay).
I had a "weird feeling" in my right knee after the last training session last week. No pain, just a feeling. So I rested four days and then ran 10 km today .
It was completely unreal perfect.
I had flow. I HAD FLOW.
And suddenly the "weird feeling" was OUCH .
After a quick Google diagnosis I think this probably is ITBS.
I´m seeing a naprapath tomorrow, because I can´t walk downhills and stairs etc.
(Maybe I just have to sit down and read a book?)
This weekend was all about boats, reading (loved the lighthouse), rain, gardens, neighbors, red wine and ice hockey.
I really haven't had so much quality time for reading, a page here and there and I don´t like it. I want to READ.
So today I´ll start with The lighthouse by Alison Moore.
The thing about running is the meditative aspect.
I think of nothing.
I just run.
(Sort of the same thing when I practiced Ashtanga yoga.)
Yesterday I ran 5,4 km and in the evening I had a strange feeling in my right knee.
That feeling today: pain in my right knee. No running today then. Just me, coffee and the next book.
Yesterday it was release day for Seared (ebook + paperback) in english and this morning I got a message telling me that five people in US bought the paperback and two the ebook.
That´s a start! Thank you!
I feel like doing the balloon dance!
Today is the day when my first thriller Seared is released in english.

Now I´m going to celebrate!
Last Friday, I was just about to go to a big party* that Carin Gerhardsen had to celebrate her eight crime novel, but my head was totally preoccupied with two things: re-writing the last page in Hudlös and making the last changes in Seared before the release tomorrow.
So I didn´t go to that party.
I stayed home and worked and it was the right choice - all my work is done.
*I heard it was a fabulous party.
