A natural born storyteller, Stefan Spjut (b. 1973) commands a tone and style unique among Scandinavian authors. His ability to combine sharp and beautiful prose with northern magical realism results in compelling and multi-layered stories. After a provocative debut novel, Fisherman’s Yarn (2008), he made a spectacular breakthrough with the eerie mythological thriller Stallo (2012), which was translated into 12 languages. Stalpi, the much-anticipated follow-up, was published in 2017.
A former literary critic at Svenska Dagbladet and culture editor at Norrbottens-Kuriren – and current taekwondo black belt – Spjut lives in Stockholm with his two children. He never misses a chance to mention Kerstin Ekman’s influence on his writing.
