IM Axel Smith (b. 1986) has made enormous progress after he decided to work seriously with chess in 2006. That year he won the Swedish junior championship and started out on a chess odyssey through Europe which earned him a number of tournament victories and more than 350 ELO points in two years. Last year he finished eighth in the strong Swedish championship and was invited to the prestigious GM tournament Sigeman Cup in Malmö where he had a hard time but managed to win a nice game against Norwegian GM Kjetil Lie. He has been the chairman of his club Lunds ASK and run its website as well as his own chess blog. Along with Esben Lund and Daniel Semcesen he plays for Lunds ASK and K41 in the Swedish and Danish leagues respectively.
He also plays for Kristiansund in the Norwegian league.

his book title says it all - Pump Up Your Rating by Axel Smith..
|Jun-04-15|| ||Penguincw: Well things have escalated pretty quickly for Axel Smith. In R5, he drew Wojtaszek (who's rated about 300 points higher) with black, which was important in "Montpellier"'s 4 1/2-3 1/2 mini-upset of "Mulhouse". Then in R6, Smith overlooks a mate in 1, and they lose 5 1/2-2 1/2 (not costly, but still sucks).|

|Aug-13-17|| ||refutor: any thoughts on Axel's book "e3 poison" which encourages openings like 1.Nf3 d5 2.e3 in order to switch the struggle from preparation to the middlegame?|

|Aug-13-17|| ||paavoh: @refutor: <any thoughts on Axel's book "e3 poison" which encourages openings like 1.Nf3 d5 2.e3...> |
None on the book, but isn't this "opening" prone to a quick transposition to QGD, Slav family etc?
IMHO, even the average club player is familiar with transposition so I gather 2.e3 is not going to throw a wrench in the works.
