'Anton Svensson' is a pseudonym for Stefan Thunberg and Anders Roslund.Stefan Thunberg is one of Scandinavia's most celebrated screenwriters. His body of work spans popular TV series such as Henning Mankell's Wallander and Hakan Nesser's Van Veeteren as well as two of Sweden's biggest box office successes in recent years: Hamilton and Jagarna 2. While Thunberg achieved fame as a screenwriter, the rest of his family became infamous in an entirely different way: his father and brothers were Sweden's most notorious bank robbers, dubbed Militarligan (The Military Gang) by the media. Anders Roslund is an award-winning investigative journalist and one of the most successful and critically acclaimed Scandinavian crime writers of our time. Roslund is part of the New York Times bestselling author duo Roslund & Hellstrom, who are recipients of many prestigious awards, including the CWA International Dagger, the Glass Key and the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers' Award, and who boast sales exceeding five million copies. Films and TV series based on Roslund & Hellstrom's novels are in the works, both in Hollywood and Europe.
