Christina Erikson grew up in Småland. Lived in Stockholm for a while but has now moved back to the countryside of Kungsör. Where she mainly writes and takes care about her icelandic horses, dogs and cats. Besides writing she works as a marketing- and sales consultant. And has previously worked as a surgical nurse.

Christina Eriksons first crime novel came in 2014, Mother’s Gift and in 2015 A Good Deed was released. Inspired from the local stories of the lonely police inspector known as the Sheriff of Kungsör, the picture of police inspector Mildred Carlesten came to life.

Together with the crime writer Thomas Erikson, Christina Erikson writes a crime series with the undertaker Rita Benson. The first in the series was released in 2015, Earth to Earth, Ashes to Ashes.


She is currently working on her high end crime series starting with Your Friend Forseti released at Albert Bonniers.


About her writing, Christina Erikson says;

I want to show that things are not always as they seem , that all  people are the same, no matter what their title, heritage and life experiences are. I also want to focus on the life that takes place in one of these small towns that is the heart of Sweden. Mother’s Gift is a tribute to my childhood . To my mother and my grandmother. Strong women who taught me that you can survive even the worst humiliation, many times through a belief in something bigger than yourself . They learned me the power of labor, to feel the soil between my fingers,  and to discover the force of earth. It is through hard work and breaking resistance you reach your goals. As known, a kite raises against the wind.”
