Over the years I have become one of Sweden's most published authors of nature books. My book "Birdsong" is Sweden's best selling nature book. Nearly 2 million copies have been sold in nine languages. Totally 16 books/titles are published until now - several of them being Swedish and international bestsellers.Now and then I'm participating in "grand" international photo-competitions and have bagged a few awards over the years - though not participating every year.
