The Theatre Book

Martin Widmark, illustrated by Helena Willis


Have you always dreamed of solving crimes together with Lasse and Maja in Valleby? Finally you can hop into the town and solve the mysteries in front of an audience! Gather some friends, some props, and start rehearsing! The four scripts are here and ready to use.


In The Train Mystery, a huge amount of money disappears from a train – is it the waitress or maybe the train driver who is guilty? In The Orchestra Mystery, the odd orchestra gets blackmailed.


The plays are based on the mysteries of the series, and they are specifically designed to play at home or in the classroom. The book also contains tips on how to make fancy costumes and to build your own props from what you have at home. Step into your role as an actor, costume designer or prop maker! You will find out that you can contribute and be creative even if you do not want to perform directly on stage.


So step into the familiar Valleby setting, and be a detective, a cop or a villain for a while. Let the show begin!
