Martin Holmén, b. 1974, teaches History and Swedish at secondary level in the suburb Hallunda south of Stockholm. He holds an MPhil in History and up until writing took over most of his time, conducted research into didactics in history. Before studying and becoming a teacher Martin worked as a waiter and bartender, but confesses that he doesn’t remember much of that time.
CLINCH, Martin’s first novel, was published in September 2015. DOWN FOR THE COUNT, the second instalment in the series, is out in September 2016, and Martin is already putting the finishing touches on the third and final book, SLUGGER, due out in 2017.
