Torsten Krol is an Australian writer resident in Queensland.[1][2] He is best known for his novels The Dolphin People (2006), a postmodern tale of a World War II-era German family lost in the South American jungle,[3] and Callisto (2007), a satire on modern day American attitudes to terrorism, post-9/11.

Described as "reclusive",[4] Krol does not make personal appearances to promote his work, and there has been media speculation about his identity; among others, The Sunday Star-Times and ABC's The Book Show have questioned whether he might be a better known author writing under a pseudonym.[5] [6]
