BookD offers a fascinating perspective into the world of publishing. Listen to authors discuss their inspiration behind their books, and hear the story of how these books were transformed from the initial concept. Tune in every other week for conversations with the stars of literature, art, film, music, science and politics. Camilla Lackberg has been celebrated as Sweden's answer to Agatha Christie which is a huge compliment for her since 'Death on the Nile' was the first book she ever read at the age of 7. Camilla talks to BookD about Sweden's darker underbelly over the pristine preconceptions of her homeland. Sweden's more stirring, atmospheric, and creepy Scandinavian landscape gives a great setting where bad things can happen. With this in mind, Camilla also discusses the phenomenon that is Swedish Crime and why leaving her job and becoming a full time author was something she had to pursue in order to keep her own sanity afloat during those dark, cold days and nights!
