I started as a journalist in 2001 and been working since then. From 2006 til 2014, I worked as a business reporter for Veckans Affärer, the largest business magazine in Sweden at the time.
I have a strong belief that reporters have to work in the field to do a proper job. That is something I have done, extensively. I’ve investigated the corruption within Swedish teleco Telia in Kazakstan, Uzbekistan and Nepal; I’ve covered the Arab Spring in Libya and Egypt, reported from Syria, and done reports on commodity rushes in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq and Mongolia. I’ve reported on Swedish companies entering Russia and India, and disclosing Swedish companies involved in illicit businesses in Peru, Montenegro, and so on.
My latest non-fiction book is about the Syrian war. THE MAN FROM HAREM (in Swedish, published 2016) tells the true story about a jihadi smuggler taking foreign fighters to ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.
Besides writing, I’m a Board member of the Association for Investigative Journalism in Sweden (Föreningen Grävande Journalister) since 2015. More currently also a Board Member of a Swedish foundation called Grävfonden, which funds investigative journalism. I also teach journalism and international reporting at Stockholm University.
