VJ Books Presents Author Anders Roslund, Borge Hellstrom, and Stefan Thunberg!
Roslund / Hellstrom is a Swedish crime writing duo composed of journalist Anders Roslund, born 1961, and Borge Hellstrom, born 1957, a famous debater on the Swedish correctional system. For many years, Roslund worked as a news reporter specializing in criminal and social issues and as an Editor-in-chief at Rapport and Aktuelt, the two major News programs on Swedish television.
