About us


Hedlund Agency is an independent literary agency with a roster of distinguished Nordic authors. As the agents of the estate of Stieg Larsson as well as David Lagercrantz, we are proud to have initiated the immensely successful follow-up to the Millennium series.

Regardless of genre, we are dedicated to quality and passion in storytelling. Our authors’ rights are at the center of everything we do, be it traditional books, films, new media, or merchandising rights.

We work closely with our authors; continuously offering support, plotting strategy and mapping new possibilities.

Our goal is always to foster long-term and rewarding collaborations between authors and professionals throughout our extensive international network.

We believe that publishing – and indeed agenting – is not just business; it is a creative partnership dedicated to the cultivation and promotion of art and ideas.
