Helene Tursten, 2010

Helene Tursten (born in Gothenburg in 1954) is a Swedish writer of crime fiction. The main character in her stories is Detective Inspector Irene Huss. Before becoming an author, Tursten worked as a nurse and then a dentist, but was forced to leave due to illness. During her illness she worked as a translator of medical articles.



Tursten has also written two non-Irene Huss books.[1].


Several films[2] have been made derived from Tursten's works featuring Irene Huss, produced by Illusion Films and Yellow Bird Films. These are in Swedish with Danish and English sub-titles. The production of more films has been underway since early 2011. (See the Swedish page for additional details.)
