Minna Lindgren


Minna Lindgren (b. 1963) is a freelance journalist and columnist known for her whimsical writing style and fearless approach to topics as strange as opera and death. In addition to novels, she has authored nonfiction books on classical music. In 2009 Lindgren won the Bonnier Journalism Prize for her article entitled “Father’s Death” (“Isän kuolema”).

The fictional Death in Sunset Grove (Kuolema Ehtoolehdossa, Teos 2013) and Escape from Sunset Grove (Ehtoolehdon pakolaiset, Teos 2014) are the first two entries of a mystery trilogy that takes a sharp and satirical look at life inside a retirement home. Both books have been critical and commercial successes, and well-known British-born Finnish director Neil Hardwick is currently working on a film adaptation.

If you enjoy the whodunits of Miss Marple, the sharp quips of Downton Abbey or the playfulness of the bestsellingThe 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared, you will fall in love with The Sunset Grove Trilogy.

Minna Lindgren has created a group of endearing, unforgettable characters, in the company of whom we feel comfortable enough to dwell on the hardest subjects – ageing, illness, death – and this is no mean feat! She is a keen observer of our time, a hilarious one to boot, and she will make you long for things past that you had completely forgotten about.”
