Someone wanted to kill the boys from Skavböke. That's what they said in the area, afterwards.
The 1990s are coming to an end and a group of boys are about to take the step into adulthood. But then something happens, and one of them decides to leave the village, another is found beaten to death and soon another loses his life. The police who try to understand how everything is connected keep returning to two names: Sander Eriksson and Killian Persson.
One hot July day more than twenty years later, another murder takes place and once again it has become dangerous out there in Skavböke. The gate between the living and the dead has been opened.
Living and Dead is a novel about breakup, guilt and grace. It is the third part in Christoffer Carlsson's suite of crime novels from Halland.

Swedish FIKA: Seven Reasons Why Fika Is the Key to Success in Swedish Companies
IKEA, H&M, EF, Tetrapak, Electrolux, Klarna, Volvo, Scania, and Spotify were all founded in Sweden. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of successful Swedish companies. And yet, Sweden only has a population of a little over 10M people. So how come Swedish companies are so successful?
The secret is fika.
In the very South of Sweden lies Skåne county. Here, they speak with an accent so thick the rest of the country can’t understand what they’re saying. Think of it like the Alabama (if you’re in the US) or Scotland (if you’re in the UK) of Sweden. The rolling hills and mild climate (compared to the rest of Sweden, not the rest of the world—it was “only” -14 degrees Celsius the other week) means it’s perfect for farming.

Swedish lobster, known for its distinctively sweet and succulent flavor, is not just a culinary delight but also a cornerstone of festive traditions, particularly during New Year's Eve in Sweden. Hailing from the cold, clear waters of the North Atlantic and the Kattegat sea area, the Swedish lobster, or 'hummare,' is highly prized for its quality and taste.
