Need help with font on the cover of novel “Malma station”

I have failed to identify the font used on the cover of the Swedish novel Malma station by Alex Schulman. My best guess is URW Geometric, but the oblique style seems to have an M where the midpoint touches the baseline – unlike the upright style. It might of course be two different typefaces, though that would surprise me.


Do you have any idea? Thanks in advace!

It think the 'ALEX SCHULMAN' really looks like Century Gothic Paneuropean (bold). The 'M' seems to be from somewhere else. As for the B/W text. Notice the 'a' in 'Malma station' and then everywhere else. Also the 'familjehemligheter' contains diamond dot over 'i' and also circular dot, but that might be just a quality artifact. There's definitely some mixing going on. Definitely at least two typefaces.


Edit: The 'S' in 'STATION' and 'SCHULMAN' is a bit different as well.

The text seems to be Circular. The title, as noted by MissNobody, looks very much like Century Gothic with a custom |M|.
