Guillou, Jan (1944–), journalist, writer, Sweden.

Jan Guillou

by Johan M Olofsson

Jan Guillou contributed to the unmasking 1973 of a secret intelligence service which spied on Swedes active in political organizations to the left of the Social Democratic party, and was sentenced to ten months in prison for espionage.

Guillou has achieved great popularity with the series of fictional novels about the Swedish top secret agent Count Carl Gustav Hamilton alias Coq Rouge (first book: 1986) in which he in passing describes societal phenomena he dislikes, as for instance alliances between journalists and authorities, racial crimes and prejudices, and rightist attitudes among police officers.

The autobiographical novel Ondskan (1981, The Evil) describes the bullying at one of Sweden's two boarding schools.
