Camilla Lackberg: “The Golden Cage”
Show Notes

This is the thirty-fourth episode of "Talking with Authors" by HEC Media and HEC Books. We're a program dedicated to speaking with some of the best selling authors around, covering many different genres.
 We’re excited to be able to come back to you after an unplanned hiatus due to the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020. Since no authors were able to travel, and our partners at the St. Louis County Library and Left Bank Books were physically closed in the early days of social distancing, we were unable to conduct many of the scheduled interviews that we had planned.  But, after the initial weeks of the global shutdown, we were able to set up remote video interviews with many authors. And in the coming weeks, we’ll be providing you with the audio of these interviews. The sound quality may be slightly different than our previous podcasts, but they all still contain the great content that you’ve come to expect.

Our guest this time is Sweden’s “Queen of Crime” Camilla Lackberg. We spoke with her via Zoom in July of 2020 about her latest book “The Golden Cage” by publisher Penguin Random House.

Her books have been translated into 40 languages and have sold over 20 million copies around the world. In addition to being one of Europe’s most recognizable crime novelists, she is an entrepreneur, part owner of a jewelry company, co-founder of an investment firm dedicated to helping women start their own businesses, and creator of a popular Swedish soap opera. We’ll hear about her formative years, learn about her inspiration for the characters in her crime novels, and get some insights into how her career and celebrity status has changed her home town as Camilla Lackberg joins us now on this edition of Talking With Authors from HEC Media and HEC Books.

HEC Media is a production company out of St. Louis, Missouri.  With the help of independent bookstore Left Bank Books and St. Louis County Library, we are able to sit down with these amazing writers and thought leaders to discuss their work, their inspiration, and what makes them special.
