Having grown up in the North of Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, I studied biology and after that worked for 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry which led me to live in several European countries.
Today, I live together with my family in Stockholm, Sweden, our home of choice since many years back.
I run my own company as a management consultant.
Already for ages I have been a great fan of crime stories and I read many of the Swedish crime series. Therefore, I had the desire to write my own crime story with my characters acting in Sweden. Already for a while I had a first idea for the plot, but first in 2015 I got the opportunity to take the time in order to make it come true. So here it is - my first book: Vanished?
“He could only hope he’d get out of here in one piece.”
To come to terms with his recent divorce, Martin, an attorney in Berlin, plans a peaceful vacation – 2 weeks in a Swedish summer house seems to be the solution. It won’t be peaceful, however, and those 2 weeks will change his entire life. He takes a liking to Liv, a Swedish woman whom he meets in the neighbourhood. Unfortunately, they don’t get to have their first date – Liv disappears under mysterious circumstances. Martin begins his search but soon realises he can’t find Liv in a strange country by himself. He hires two private investigators, and their discoveries make everything seem even stranger. The complexities in this suspenseful criminal case lead to a hunt across Sweden. Martin comes close to finding answers, but his search lands him in very real danger, eventually leading to the first deaths. Soon he‘s wondering if he can get Liv and himself out of this situation alive.
SECRETS?: A Swedish Crime Novella
"Dammit! She’d made a huge mistake. She’d never make it out of here - they were going to kill her."
In the crime novella SECRETS?, fledgling private investigator Elin Bohlander takes on what looks like an easy assignment — at first: to determine if her client’s boyfriend is having an affair with another woman. To do this, Elin follows him to a secluded cabin in the woods, where she soon discovers that what’s actually transpiring is stranger than anyone thought. Having ventured too far, she’s stumbled upon a hornet’s nest and put her life at risk. But it’s too late. Can Elin win the unequal fight against a gang of brutal child molesters?
SECRETS? is the second, standalone book from Christer Tholin’s Stockholm Sleuth Series. In the previous novel VANISHED?, Elin and her colleague Lars solve their first case together.
If you like fast-paced action and surprising twists and turns, then you will love Christer Tholin's sleuth series.
