A former international Swedish pop star, Jenny Rogneby was a criminal investigator for the Stockholm City Police Department for several years. Investigating thefts, robberies and murder, Rogneby used her real-life experience to craft the bone-chilling, best-selling Scandinavian thriller: Leona: The Die is Cast (Other Press, August 2017), a gripping novel about one

 

woman’s choice to eschew her dark past through any means possible. The first in a three-part series, Leona is a psychological exploration into vice, trauma, and police corruption.

Following the discussion, copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
