Under två timmar

(Less Than Two Hours)

Lost in the humdrum of diaper changes, soccer practices, and the monotonous gray corridors of the Swedish Migration Agency, Staffan feels he's lost both himself and the stature he once held. But now, it's time for a change. Determined to reclaim his identity, Staffan decides to do what everyone else is doing — run the Göteborgsvarvet (The Gothenburg Half Marathon), and not just run it, but conquer it in less than two hours.

In "Less than Two Hours," join Staffan on a winding journey to rediscover his worth. His quest goes awry, pushing him beyond the boundaries he'd never come close to before. It becomes a devastating journey, both for himself and those around him. Instead of advancing his position, he risks losing everything he once had. Will his pursuit for redemption lead to triumph or tragedy?

Availabla in Swedish - hardcover, audio book and e-book


(Wellspring Village)

Embark on a journey with Staffan and Anna as they navigate the challenges of modern life on an increasingly warmer planet. In a quest for a more sustainable lifestyle, their marriage faces new complexities when Anna finds unexpected joy in the eco-village, Ljuskällan (Wellspring Village).

As they grapple with beekeeping duties, self-righteous villagers, and the charismatic founder, Adrian, their choices to do what's right may either unite or divide them.

In this standalone sequel to "Less than Two Hours," "The Light Source" is a contemporary drama exploring the difficulties of making the right choices and the compromises that shape relationships. Will their love withstand the challenges of a new reality, and can one truly live without wifi? Discover a compelling tale of heart and pain in "The Light Source."

I'm Hanna Landahl

and I started writing fiction ten years ago, mostly because I was hit by depression. And I realized that the only thing that made me feel good was writing. At first, I just wanted to give it a try, see if I could. Then I was hooked.


Now I'm working on my thirteenth book.


I live in a small town called Falköping in southwestern Sweden, with my husband, my two teenage sons, and my dog.


I am a trained teacher, have worked as one for ten years, and I am very fond of writing about adolescence.

I also love writing about complex family bonds.
