I went to see Erik Axl Sund’s gallery for the second time to enjoy the opening of artist Sten Backman’s “The Bicameral Mind” art exhibit.

To my joy, the gallery owner Jerker Eriksson was also there. Jerker Eriksson is an old acquaintance. He is a former librarian in Sigtuna kommun, which I cover for news. He is also someone I greatly admire. Jerker Eriksson together with co-author Håkan Axlander Sundquist wrote the crime fiction trilogy about Victoria Bergman. Together, the duo has the pen name Erik Axl Sund, prize-winning crime fiction writers in Sweden.

Their books are now translated into 40 languages. From what I have heard, we will be seeing their crime story as an english tv-series pretty soon.

So I know Jerker Eriksson long before he became a literary figure in Sweden. I am so glad that we are friends. I am a big admirer. Will always be.

Anyway, I told my editor that we ought to write about them again soon.
