(1976-    ) Swedish journalist and author, most of whose novels to date have been fantasy, including the Engelfors Trilogy beginning with Cirkeln (2011; trans Per Carlsson as The Circle 2012), all with Sara Bergmark Elfgren (1980-    ). He is of sf interest for Slutet (2018; trans Judith Kiros as The End 2020), which is set in a Near Future Earth due to be impacted in six months by a Comet, a Disaster that will cause the End of the World; as the moment approaches, the Young Adult cast explores family and Sex and other concerns, including a murder. The exuberance Strandberg shows in his fantasy is here moderately tamed, or tempered. [JC]
