Latest book: Ett litet korn av sanning

Christian Unge (b. 1972), works as chief physician at Karolinska University Hospital in southern Stockholm. He specialises in internal medicine and did his doctorate in HIV, under the guidance of Hans Rosling and AnnaMia Ekström. He runs a successful podcast about medicine together with two fellow doctors.

Unge's first book at Norstedts, If I Have a Bad Day Someone Might Die, a sincere and fascinating account of his years working as a doctor in Sweden and in Africa, was published in 2018.  

In 2019 he launched a new literary crime series, starring complex female surgeon Tekla Berg. Later the same year he also introduced a spin-off, Ambulance 906, an audio first series at Norstedts' Tiden imprint.
