Liselotte Roll is a freelance journalist and has previously worked for Newspapers and The Swedish Radio as a scriptwriter. She is also a qualified Marine Archaeologist, and while working on a dig uncovering a pre-Incan settlement in La Rioja, Argentina, she discovered the story of the military junta's reign. These memories eventually came to form in her debut, Good Girls Don´t Tell. Liselotte's books have been translated to half a dozen languages and have piqued the attention of crime fiction aficionados. Critics have described her as one of the most exciting debut writers in recent years and the next Nordic queen of crime.

 

Liselotte Roll describes her own writing with these words:

"My writing initially sprang out of some misery, I'm afraid. I would probably never have been a writer or especially a dark minded crime writer if I hadn't grown up with an alcoholic parent and had some issues to dig into. With that said, I am a very happy and calm person nowadays living a quite normal suburban life far from the lives of the tortured souls in my books. I write with the feeling that each new book is like taking a plunge into the unknown. It´s scary but very rewarding and hopefully I will be able to experience many more dives in the years to come."

 

Liselotte lives in a Stockholm suburb with her family.
