Keyhole Stories is the collaborative effort of fifteen writers. We come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but what we have in common is the experience of living in Stockholm, and an interest in writing fiction.
The setting of the stories take place in an old rental building on the island of Södermalm in central Stockholm. Catch a glimpse of a young boy at play in Sandra Jabre’s Viktor the Great, human trafficking and prostitution with Björn Rudberg, and the need for belonging with Jon Kahn. Spy on gangsters and villains from Andrés Miñarro and Vilhelm Gard, see what a smartphone will bring home with Avelino Benavides, and witness friendship and unrequited love with Emily Aisling Hall. There are elderly neighbours to watch over in two stories from Simon Linter and Matthew Corke, and the reflection of a suicide from Tove Backhammar. Witness finding a friend in food with Eva Wissting, dressing up with Claudia E. Bernal, Jay Wong’s playboy and morality adventure, and immigration and moving with the times from Andrew MacPherson and Tanis Bestland.
Now, in 2017, we’re releasing our second short story anthology: Dead Ends.
Leif and Marisa Andersson are an attractive couple in their fifties who appear to have it all: Successful businesses. Beautiful children. A lovely home. But one August evening, their car crashes into a pillar, killing Leif instantly and leaving Marisa critically injured. What consequences will the accident have for their family, friends and acquaintances? In a few twists of fate, a number of people who never met them before the crash also end up deeply affected by Leif and Marisa’s tragedy.
Hearts will be broken.
Secrets will come to light.
And the lives of both the living and the dead will be changed forever.
