A brilliant new Scandinavian noir series from Sweden introducing Agent John Adderley, already sold in 15 countries

The Bucket List is the gripping debut novel by writing team Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström, launching a stunning new Nordic noir series featuring Swedish-American FBI Agent John Adderley. Like the best writers of the genre, such as Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbø, Mohlin & Nyström combine a strong crime story with a novel of psychological richness and depth for an irresistible read.
The Bucket List starts when undercover FBI Agent John Adderley wakes up in a hospital bed in Baltimore with extensive gunshot wounds. He knows he’s lucky to be alive. And just a few beds away is the man who 24 hours ago pointed a gun to his head.
Ten years earlier in Sweden, Emelie, the young heiress to (an H&M-esque) clothing empire AckWe has gone missing. When local police find blood and semen in a deserted area, they arrest a teenage boy. He denies the charges and since the body is never found, he can’t be prosecuted.
Back to the present, Emelie’s high-profile cold case file is sent to Agent Adderley, now living in Sweden (where he’s not lived since he was a boy) in witness protection, hiding until he can testify against the drug cartel he infiltrated back in the States. Adderley is determined to solve Emelie’s case, but, at the same time, he knows that the drug cartel has a price on his head . . .

About the authors

Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström grew up together in a Swedish small town and created their first crime novel as 10-year-olds. After working professionally with editorial text and directing/scriptwriting for stage and film for many years, they decided to pick up where they left off in middle school and write a crime novel. They both love crime in all forms and realized their strengths were a fruitful combination: the journalist’s sharp pen mixed with the scriptwriter’s sense of dramaturgy and dialogue. The Bucket List, their debut novel, has been sold in 15 countries.
