The international phenomenon by debut novelist and screenwriter Fredrik T. Olsson, a breakneck thriller in which a damaged couple must race to save our future
Every second could be our last unless one man can rewrite our future...
DAY ONE: KIDNAP
'We've been looking for you,' they tell William Sandberg when they abduct him. Imprisoned at a secret location, this broken genius can only win his freedom by completing an impossible task.
DAY TWO: OUTBREAK
Out on the streets, people begin to die horrible, gruesome deaths. Every moment that William fails to complete his task, more will perish.
DAY THREE: CHAOS
The search is on to rescue William as catastrophe after catastrophe kills thousands. But soon William realises the answer to the puzzle might be the most terrifying secret of all.
Secrets are unveiled with a masterful sense of pace . . . Olsson has the page-turning power of Michael Crichton - The Sun
A colourful blockbuster thriller couched in distinctly cinematic terms - The Independent
'Chain of Events' has a conceit at its heart that is so simple and clever I wish I'd thought of it. If you like your clocks ticking and your end of the world nighing and your pace fast and relentless, all shot through with a little bloody pandemic and code cracking, then boy are you ever going to love this book. I did. - Simon Toyne
Born in 1969 outside Goteborg on the Swedish west coast, Fredrik T. Olsson spent most of his childhood writing, acting and producing plays. Refusing to grow up, this is pretty much what he has kept doing since. A full-time screenwriter for film and television since 1995, Fredrik has written scripts in genres ranging from comedy to thrillers, as well as developing, showrunning and head-writing original material for various Swedish networks. He is also a standup comedian and makes occasional contributions as a director.
