ELINA BACKMAN

Moi!

My name is Elina Backman. I´m a crime author from Finland. My debut novel All the King´s men was published in May 2020 and the sequel Still Waters Run Deep in May 2021.

Besides being a writer I´m a media & marketing professional. I work as a Creative Director at Bauer Media Finland. I live in Helsinki, in an old wooden 1920 house with a family of 2 kids and a husband. I love books (all sorts, especially crime novels), police tv-series, travelling, cycling and friends. I´m a host of a Book & Wine Club. The Book & Wine club gathers everything good around a big table: good friends, good books, good wine & great food. The club was founded in 2011 and we still see each other once a month in my living room.

Since I was a kid all sorts of mysteries have caught my attention.

Have You read my book? I´m very happy to hear how did you find it <3
