In 2020 Hanna´s first novel, Glass Veranda with a Lake View, was published by Historiska Media. The book is a gripping, heartwarming,
romantic, and humorous story about two lives that are surprisingly
intertwined with each other, set in an atmosphere of cinnamon, cloves
and mulled wine around Christmas time in the picturesque heartland of
Sweden. Think Love Actually and The Holiday with a Scandinavian twist.
This is the first book of three about Nora and Viktor.
The second book in the series The Gallery by the lake was released on May the 3rd 2021 and has been well recieved by critics and readers.
Hanna has also written other books. In 2018 her book Malum (9-12 years) was published. A suspense, yet thought-provoking story, about how we often get caught up with devices versus human relationships.
Two years later her book The Secret of the Maple door (6-9 years) was released. It is a story in 24 chapters, perfect for cozy moments by the fireplace in Christmas time, but the book is suitable all year around.
Her most recent book for younger audience, The Mission in London, she wrote together with her husband Jakob.
It is the first book in the Guardians of the History. The book is set
at crucial moments during WWII. These books are both riveting
page-turners for 9-12yr olds, as well as a great introduction to the
subject of history, and the act of reading. The Mission in London was
just released by Tukan Förlag in Sweden, and went straight to the top of
Foreign rights: Please contact Johan Almqvist at Tapir Literary Agency.

Glasveranda by the Lake
Nora flees abruptly from her apartment in Stockholm when it turns out
that her controlling boyfriend Jonas has been unfaithful. To get some
distance to everything, she takes the train to idyllic Leksand and her
friend Vega who offers comfort. Nora rents a small log cabin with a
glass veranda and lake view, and she promises herself never to fall for a
man again, but then she meets Viktor – the charming neighbor who seems
to be hiding a secret.
Meanwhile, the washed up author Claes is trying to take advantage of an old man called Torsten, who has a failing memory, but a fantastic ability to tell stories and captivate an audience, something Claes is lacking. Claes bribes the old man with coffee and cookies to get him to start talking, and Torsten begins to reveal the story of his life, which includes a tragic accident that turns out to be linked to Nora.

Saga Falls series
The series could be described as a mix between Lord of the Rings and Narnia – but with a unique concept, featuring a battle between chess pieces, and a map that expands and grows bigger for every adventure. Hanna’s writing also displays a certain Scandinavian bittersweet warmth, reminiscent of Astrid Lindgren. Every book in the series is an adventure of one of the six different chess pieces.
The storyline of the Saga Falls is similar to modern day videogames and it captures both reluctant readers as well as bookworms.
The antagonist in the series is Styx and the protagonist The Snowy Owl. The Snowy Owl is not there in person, and the resistance against Styx must be fought by the siblings Sofia and Leo from our world which is called Mirroria in the books.
The seventh and the last book takes place before the other ones, and
sets the stage for the whole series, and here you finally get to know
the mysterious character Snowy Owl. Many readers have expressed that
after finishing the seventh book, they want to start reading the Saga
Falls series all over again.
