Meet Viveca Sten
Viveca Sten & Sandhamn

- Viveca has written several non-fiction books prior to her crime novels.
- Viveca is a great humanitarian and has for several years been involved in the Red Cross Centre for Tortured Refugees. Her warmth and caring has been passed on to her three children and last summer her daughter left for the US to tour with the volunteer organization Up with People.
- She describes herself as driven, stubborn and caring, which is obvious when you meet her, read her books and see all the things she has accomplished in life.
