Welcome to the official UK website of Johan Theorin
Hi, I am Johan.


I write dark mystery novels with some supernatural overtones, which mainly take place on the Swedish island of Öland. This is the place where I spent a large part of my childhood, and still visit as often as possible.

Öland is situated in the Baltic sea, and is a sunny and popular place for tourists to visit in the summer. In the winter the island is dark and cold, and very few people live there. The weather can be severe with sudden blizzards, and many ships have been wrecked along the eastern coast of the island.

On these pages you can learn more about Öland and my mystery novels.
