She has previously worked at the Swedish Security Service, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Swedish National Defense College, where she was a junior expert on the Middle East conflict and the foreign policy of the European Union. She made her debut in 2009 with Unwanted, the first installment in a series featuring investigative analyst Fredrika Bergman. Ohlsson's two following novels, The Daisy and Guardian Angels, were both shortlisted for the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers' Award for 'Best Crime Novel of the Year' in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Kristina's children's fiction debut The Glass Children, the first installment in a trilogy about three 12-year-old friends in a small town, was published in 2013 and received rave reviews.

Kristina Ohlsson is rapidly becoming one of Sweden's most popular crime writers, and was awarded the 2010 Stabilo Prize for 'Best Crime Writer of Southern Sweden'.

"No one creates intrigues like she does. It is simply brilliant."
––Maj Sjöwall

"The writing is tense, dense and very atmospheric. The stories sharp and impossible to let go. Kristina Ohlsson is a true queen of scandinavian crime."
––Måns Kallentoft

"Kristina Ohlssons has managed to do what many before her have tried: to take the Swedish crime novel to a new and unexpected level."
––Arne Dahl
