Before Ulf Treged published his first novel, “The Night Belongs to the Sun”, he was writing short criminal stories, which were coming into existence during the long winter evenings, without publishing. Most of the stories take place in Sweden in the first half of the 20th century and Treged was inspired by real Swedish murder cases. These stories will be one by one published on the website of the author.

Each story is a cool meditation on the most despicable human acts, as well as perverted motivations that can lead a hand of a man to execute the final work. Treged tunes himself in the psychology of individual characters and reconstructs cases against the background of real testimonies from archives and press from that time. Each story reveals a secret addiction such as the desire for power, money or sex.
