Kåre Halldén was born in Gothenburg and grew up in Bromölla, which is a small town in the south of Sweden. Before he started his own company, he lived and worked in a great number of countries. He speaks several languages fluently; English, Spanish, French and Swedish (Scandinavian). Today, he is an author and wine entrepreneur in Stockholm. His interest in writing stems from his relative, the late Professor Francisco Morales Padrón, who was the leading authority on Central and South American history in the Spanish-speaking world.
Kåre Halldén holds a Degree of Master of Science in Business and Economics from University of Gothenburg as well as an MBA from University of Nottingham. He has also published several non-fiction books about Champagne. The last one was awarded with the 2009 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards for the best Swedish book about French wines. The Champagne Führer is his debut novel.
