, born 1974, is a Swedish criminal defense lawyer and author, who made his writing debut in August 2006 with Snabba Cash
. It is an account of the Stockholm underworld. Snabba Cash
is the first of a planned trilogy called The Stockholm Noir Trilogy
. Two years later the second installment, Aldrig Fucka Upp
was published by Wahlström & Widstrand. A graphic novel with illustrator Peter Bergting (The Portent) entitled Gängkrig 145
was published May 2009. While this project does tie into his previous novels, it is not the third part of The Stockholm Noir Trilogy
as some Swedish media has claimed.
His writing has been compared to [[James Ellroy]] and [[Dennis Lehane]]. Jens Lapidus lives in Stockholm with his wife, daughter and son.
