Gabriella Ullberg Westin has great concern about the psychology of crime, an interest in the individual dilemmas that lead to crime and a personal drive in creating an intriguing puzzle for the reader her novels impress.


She has studied criminology at the University of Stockholm and before she became a fulltime writer she was head of the communication department at one of Sweden’s largest telecommunication companies.


Research is very important to her before she begins to write: All work takes form after meetings and interviews with policemen with different specialties, real criminals, psychologists and prison officers.


The moment when Gabriella got into crime novels came when reading Henning Mankell's Faceless Killers, with total fascination Gabriella read everything by Mankell and understood that this was a way for her to also unite her passions, to write about crime with a strong pathos to the individual's and society.


Today she lives in Stockholm with her husband who is a policeman and their two children. And their dog Ruth.
