The Arc of the Swallow
Danish born Sissel-Jo Gazan (b. 1973) is a biology graduate from the University of Copenhagen. Her major public break-through came with The Dinosaur Feather in 2008, with which she stepped into the realm of crime and suspense. By incorporating science with murder, and recognizing the secrets and drama of every man’s life, Sissel-Jo Gazan has found a unique style that makes her stand out on the Scandinavian crime writing scene.
