The manuscript for Thomas Eriksson’s debut novel was accepted in 2010. With his debut novel, Thomas has created Alex King – a character with skills very much like his own. Like Thomas, Alex King is a specialist in body language, interpreting behaviour patterns and analysing types of people. This knowledge forms the basis of the story in his first novel, The Illusion (Bländverk) and now in the follow-up, Atrocity (Illdåd). Totally four books are planned for the series about Alex King.
