David Ärlemalm has been a voracious reader and an aspirating writer for all of his adult life. During the parental leave for his youngest child he wrote for one hour every day, his son’s nap time, and since then he has found it very difficult to stop. His debut, A Little Death around the Eyes, was published in January 2020 and was followed by As the Night one year later. His prose is concise, precise and hits you straight in the gut and has been called “Ärlemalm noir” by critics.
His third novel will be published by Forum in January 2023.
