The Swedish journalist and author Ingrid Hedström was born in Söderhamn, Hälsingland province. Having grown up in Dalarna province in the 1950s and ‘60s, she was the first in her family to study for a baccalaureate, and she was awarded an MA in psychology from the University of Stockholm in 1976. The topic of her thesis was the development of family life in the late capitalist era. She briefly worked as a school psychologist, which she did not enjoy, so she took a job as a secretary and proof-reader. As of the 1980s she worked as a journalist for the Socialist party organ Internationalen, she was among the founders of the feminist magazine Kvinnotidningen Q, and she worked at the Borlänge Tidning, LO-tidningen and Svenska Dagbladet daily newspapers. In 1990 she was employed at Dagens Nyheter as a business reporter, and a couple of years later she became the newspaper’s Brussels correspondent. In 1997 she continued to cover the EU from Stockholm. She decided to become a novelist after attending a crime fiction creative writing course in Wales taught by Val McDermid and Denise Mina. Hedström married the journalist and political commentator Henrik Brors in 1982.
