The Hunt For The Bicycle ThiefJill & Jonatan 3

Peter Gissy, illustrated by Louise Jacobsson

Who stole Lucia’s bike? When one of Jill and Jonatan’s friend’s loses her bicycle, it’s just the start of an exciting adventure. At the same time, a large sum of money goes missing from the Äppelbo apartment block. The trail leads to a strange magician. And a lorry comes off the road outside town, and it’s only newspaper reporters Jill and Jonatan who seem to see a connection between the theft of the bicycle, the theft of the money, and the accident.

Peter Gissy is a journalist based in Gothenburg who writes detective stories for both adults and children; many have been translated, and he has won a number of prizes.
