Sandhamn, the Island
- The Sandhamn novels are set in the Stockholm archipelago, on the enchanting island of Sandhamn, known since the 17th century as the centre for the royal naval pilots
- Sandhamn is also the yachting centre of Sweden and home to the Swedish Royal Yachting Society (KSSS)
- The island only has a tiny population of 120 islanders, but it is invaded by 3000 summer guests and hordes of tourists as well as sailing enthusiasts each summer
- The scenery is idyllic, but evil lurks beneath the surface...
