About the Author

Anders de la Motte, a former police officer, made his debut in 2010 with the award-winning thriller Game and has since then been one of Sweden's most beloved and popular crime writers. He is the author of several acclaimed and bestselling crime fiction series, among them the suspenseful Skåne Quartet. Published in 2022, The Mountain King is the first bestselling installment in his new Leo Asker series.


"Unsettling. De la Motte had me hooked from the very first page."-- Kyle Mills, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Code Red
"A masterful thriller that succeeds on all levels: absorbing, deftly-plotted, bone-chilling. Leonore Asker takes her place at the front of the line of Swedish crime solvers: awkward, headstrong, unstoppable. I honestly read the last 100 pages with the hair on my arms standing on edge."-- Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of The Fifth Column
"THE MOUNTAIN KING is Nordic crime fiction at its best: addictive, eerie and hauntingly atmospheric (fans of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will devour it). Leonore Asker, and the wonderfully named 'Department of Lost Souls', are fascinating and unpredictable. This is the new series you need in your life. EXCEPTIONAL."-- Will Dean, bestselling author of The Last to Burn
"The twisty, spine-tingling mystery that unfolds is creepy and sinister, laced with a touch of dark Scandinavian folklore."--Willy Williams "firstCLUE "
"Superb...De la Motte nimbly juggles a substantial cast as his plot grows increasingly intricate, ratcheting suspense to near-unbearable heights. This crackerjack page-turner will keep readers up late."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
