Japanese opinion: ”A masterpiece of non-stop SF thriller!”

Thank you Japan, for all positive comments and reviews.


Spanish review: MONA, one of the great thrillers of the year!

"It is a completely addictive story. It is impossible to stop reading. It keeps you guessing until the end, because there is nothing that gives us clues about what may happen.

It's an easy read very well narrated reading, engaging from the start, with very real characters and others. Moreover, sure to be liked by Hollywood filmmakers to bring to the big screen, it has many ingredients to be one of the great thrillers of the year.


If you want an exciting, addictive novel, and a great deal of tension; do not hesitate, this is your book. Of course, a different thriller."

Four "hats" in first Swedish blog-review

FOLIEHAT PÅ have read SINON.

"Early in the book, the reader is thrown into a complex plot in which the Mossad, Palestinian interests, Swedish duped scientists and biomedical companies are woven into a carpet of terrorism, revenge, greed and love. All this in Swedish idyllic archipelago, on the dusty streets and shady premises in the Middle East and in a clinically clean and controlled lab in Uppsala. Places that felt very much alive and visited. The language of the book is clean and has a good flow.

Sehlberg has once again gotten together a very dense and exciting thriller that also should work outside Sweden, it does not feel like a standard Swedish crime novel or thriller, more like something I read from across the Atlantic. Tom Clancy feels close at hand in this book. Sinon is entirely in the time given the Ebola rampage. It can get the most fearless to wash their hands twice. 

I give SINON four 'hats'."

SINON - first Swedish review

TARA magazine have read SINON.

"A nightmarish thriller. Dan T. Sehlbergs political thriller SINON is an exciting alternative to the mass murderers and woman haters who, in recent years have been forced inside the bestselling book covers. Here terrorists, spies and pharmaceutical companies compete in doing bad things .... I enjoyed a sweaty thrill and anxiety-filled reading!”

My name is Charlie

I have not been able write a singel word since the horrible attacks on Charlie Hebdo, Paris and the freedom of speech. I usually don´t work with a penn but today I grab one and hold it in the air together with the rest of the democratic world. We, the many, will never yield to violence of the few. We, the sane, will never give way for the insane.

The “Je Suis Charlie” hashtag has become one of the most popular in the history of Twitter as people around the world showed their solidarity for the victims of the Paris outrage.  At its height the tag was tweeted at a rate of 6,500 times a minute and featured in 3.4 million tweets in just one 24 hour period. I join the movement for peace and democracy.


Today, my name is Charlie.

My world

Stark contrasts; on one hand, writing is one of the loneliest job´s in the world, but depending on where you are in the process, it´s also highly social and involves loads of other people. However, when it comes to the actual writing, you are alone.

At this the desk I spend lots and lots of hours, only breaking of for a walk in the woods with Dandy (our cocker), brewing more coffee or falling asleep well into the first light of the next morning. To me ... This is the most precious place in the world.


Review in German Hr-iNFO: "This is best thriller entertainment!"

"This thriller has everything that makes a good crime story: a compelling plot, believable characters, confusing cross and cross connections, scenes of action almost everywhere on earth. I was captivated by the idea that a computer virus can skip to a man. And even if it sounds like science fiction: it is written credible. The political background of the mystery is for me one more thing on top of it: a recent, explosive and, above all, an intelligent thriller. Five out of six stars."
