IT CAME TO ME ON A WHIM: The Story of Ingeborg Andersson, Child Murderess, tells the story of Maria Bouroncle's great-aunt, who killed her three children in 1929.


In 2022, the independent sequel THE GIRL WITH A NAME TAG: A Finnish War Child in Sweden was published.


In 2021 and 2022, Carl Eneroth's film "The Child Murderess of Vesene", based on Maria's book about Ingeborg, won the prize for Best Short Documentary in Budapest, London, Miami and New Jersey.

IT CAME TO ME ON A WHIM is now available in Dutch and Finnish. It will soon be translated to English, Italian, Polish and Spanish.

Maria Bouroncle takes us deep into a story of real-life murder to show us the humanity - even love - behind the crime. A riveting read - haunting, atmospheric, and ultimately, heart-breaking.
