Frida Skybäck is passionate about two things; telling captivating stories and making room for more complex and interesting female characters in the literary world. Her novels always include characters depicted with warmth and empathy, love, relationship drama, touching life stories and dark family secrets.


After completing a suite of hugely popular historical novels, Frida Skybäck took the leap into a modern setting with The Bookshop on Riverside Drive. The book became a great success, reaching no 1 on the Swedish bestseller list all genres and sold over 100 000 copies in the first year. Her second contemporary novel, The Book Club at the End of the World, which was released in late August 2019, has been as equally celebrated by readers and critics and debuted at no 3 on the Swedish bestseller list all genres. The third book The Book Cabinet Secret was released in Sweden with raging reviews and has taken the readers with storm.


In the fall of 2021, Skybäck released Rootless a captivating Family Noir set in Malmö. Even though her previous bestselling books are also built around a mystery, this is Skybäck's first suspense novel. "I have always loved crime drama and thrillers, especially character-driven stories about complex family relations where something goes wrong".


Besides being a best-selling author, Frida Skybäck is also a teacher of history and languages, but thanks to her recent success she is now working as a full time novelist.
