The Öland Quartet – dark mystery novels with some supernatural overtones, which mainly take place on the Swedish island of Öland; a small island in the Baltic Sea and a sunny and popular place for tourists to visit in the summer. In the winter however, the island is dark and cold and very few people live there.

The quartet covers the four seasons on the island. The stand-alone psychological thriller The Asylum takes place on the Swedish west coast.
