About the Author

Johanna Hedman was born in Stockholm in 1993. She holds a Master's degree in Peace and Conflict Studies and she has lived and worked in Paris, southern India and New York, where she interned for the Swedish UN delegation. The Trio is her first novel.


A smart, elegant and moving novel, all the more impressive for it being Johanna Hedman's debut... The stylish emotional distance of Normal People
*The Times*

Sharp, vividly imagined and affecting in a way that both intrigues and captivates
*Irish Times*

Fans of Sally Rooney will adore this excellent novel, which has garnered rave reviews
*The Bookseller*

The Trio is like the love child of Normal People and Brideshead Revisited. A sublime and elegiac meditation on love, intimacy, freedom and jealousy, it elegantly explores the gulf between our interior lives and the personas we perform - and between ourselves and other people. Hedman's writing (and Josefsson's stunning translation) is staggeringly beautiful. Vivid, effortless, and perceptive to a molecular degree
*Francesca Reece, author of 'Voyeur'*

Delicate and beguiling... The Trio spans from Berlin to London to Paris as the [characters] continually renegotiate who they each are to each other, questions of ownership and privilege floating in the background of summers which feel both fleeting and endless

An international success before even being published, The Trio is a novel that stands well above the hype... Elegiac, bittersweet, [with] the golden shimmer of nostalgia, it is a story about big emotions
*Gefle Dagblad*

Mature and confident, delicate and eloquent, a study in intimacy . . . Timeless and universal
*Kult Magasin*

Full of verve, nostalgia, longing and the claustrophobic euphoria of being in the world with the people you love, this gorgeous novel whisks you along with it; you have no choice but to gratefully follow
*Lara Williams, author of 'Supper Club'*

Vigorous and vivid, wistful and engaging. Johanna Hedman should definitely expect to win prizes
*Upsala Nya Tidning*

An acute, eloquent and bittersweet debut... There may be an August Prize nomination!

An unusual debut, confident and intriguing, [by] a mature and gifted writer. The implicit nostalgia works its magic [in this] story of the time when life first gains colour and shape

The ending leaves a stinging sensation [asking] questions of what really becomes important in hindsight, what we remember and how we remember it, and, not least why we become who we are as a consequence of our choices
*SR Kulturnytt*

Stylishly and elegantly composed

How on earth is it possible that Johanna Hedman is a debutant? It feels as if I've seen the future of Swedish writing
*Alex Schulman, author of 'The Survivors'*

An absolutely fantastic debut novel
*Fredrik Backman, author of 'A Man Called Ove'*
