Denmark is after all a pretty small country with a small population.
But it is, after all, known for Hans Christian Anderson, Copenhagen, and the Little Mermaid.
2011 began well for Danish crime fiction writer Jussi Adler-Olssen when he won this year’s Golden Laurel (a prize awarded by the Danish booksellers) for his crime thriller “Journal 64″ (published late 2010 in Denmark), the fourth in the series featuring Inspector Carl Mørck and the Police Department Q.
For me THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES (aka MERCY) by Adler-Olssen has been one of my notable reads for the year.
This is the first in the Monck series and I rated it at 4.8.
Another Danish writer to look out for, particularly if you enjoy flash fiction and comic cozy crime fiction, is Dorte Hummelshøj Jakobsen.
4.4, CANDIED CRIME
4.1, LIQUORICE TWISTS
4.2, THE COSY KNAVE
So sadly that is all I can tell you about Danish crime fiction, so I'm hoping to learn more from fellow participants in this week's Crime Fiction on a Euro Pass.
