robert-karjel-crossing-the-borderCrossing the Border (Gå över gränsen) was my debut novel, a Cold War thriller set in northern Sweden and the Russian Arctic. Took me seven years to write. Believe it or not, the year it came out, only Henning Mankell sold more thrillers in Sweden than I did.

Wahlström & Widstrand, Sweden. Hardcover, 1997. Paperback, 1998.  Audiobook, 2011.

“This is classic writing, with the flair of Where Eagles Dare, Force 10 from Navarone, and Ice Station Zebra.” – Kvällsposten

“It is, simply put, a magnificent thriller that engages you from the very first page until the breathtaking end.” – Folkbladet Norrköping
