Och fjättra Lilith i kedjor [And Shackle Lilith in Chains] (2005)
Åsa Schwarz

Contributed by Carl Gustav Werner

People die of shortage of blood, with bite marks on their necks. But, no, there is a natural explanation to it. Some old sect devoted to Lilith, and governed by mathematical principles, lies behind, and is uncovered by a mathematically interested woman. She and her grandfather also gives each other mathematical riddles. The author is a computer security professional and the story contains more computer-related stuff, like hacking and computer crime, than mathematics.

As far as I know, this novel has appeared only in Swedish, but the author's website includes an English description.

Thanks to Carl Gustav Werner for bringing this to my attention.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
