In a successful mix of high-octane suspense and psychological depth, authors Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström deliver a thrilling sequel in the John Adderley series. The Other Sister is an ambitious crime thriller that is tight, layered, and gripping from start to finish.
About the Author
Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström grew up together in a small Swedish town and created their first crime novel when they were ten. After careers in journalism and directing/screenwriting, respectively, they decided to pick up where they left off and write crime novels together, realizing their strengths make a fruitful combination—the journalist’s sharp pen mixed with the screenwriter’s sense of dramaturgy and dialogue. The Bucket List, their first novel, was a winner of Sweden’s Crimetime Award for Best Debut Novel and has been sold in 15 countries. They are based in Sweden.
“Mohlin and Nyström’s stellar sequel to 2021’s The Bucket List more than delivers on the first book’s promise . . . This nail-biter doesn’t let John off the hook for some hard choices he’s forced to make as the action builds to a jaw-dropping climax. Readers will be counting the days to see where these gifted writers take their lead next.”

“This second novel by the Swedish friends and co-writers Mohlin and Nyström more than lives up to their 2021 debut in The Bucket List . . . The harsh crescendo of revelation adds both suspense and depth to a very dark tale of bad choices leading to crime and consequences . . . It all comes together in a grimly satisfying series of events, showing more clearly than ever that Mohlin and Nyström understand costs and penalties.”
— New York Journal of Books
“In a successful mix of high-octane suspense and psychological depth, authors Peter Mohlin and Peter Nyström deliver a thrilling sequel in the John Adderley series . . .a unique twist on the usual Nordic police procedural . . . an unusual deviation in this genre, that’s well worth checking out for readers looking for something different and darker even than the standard Scandinoir.”
