Liza Marklund

Liza Marklund

Eva Elisabeth "Liza" Marklund (born 9 September 1962 in Pålmark near Piteå, Norrbotten, Sweden) is a Swedish journalist and detective fiction writer.

Most of her books feature a newspaper journalist called Annika Bengtzon. Some readers consider her style of language to be influenced by her career writing for evening tabloids.

Marklund has been vocal in the debate surrounding the Swedish social issue of depopulation in inland areas of Norrland, as well as issues relating to the treatment of women.

Marklund lives in Stockholm with her husband Mikael.
