He attended law school during a short period in the 1960s but decided to pursue a career in journalism instead.
When director Mikael Håfström, who worked with him on the movie Evil (2003) based on his book, refused to give both him and lead actor Andreas Wilson their tickets to the Academy Awards, he responded by closing down his production company, Moviola, ending his and Håfström's plan to bring his books about the medieval hero Arn to the screen.
