The Crime Book Festival

Presented by Horsens Municipal Library

Murder they wrote! The Danish Crime Book Fair, 'Krimimessen', is held at the iconic FÆNGSLET, the atmospheric Old State Penitentiary in Horsens. Now Denmark’s most prestigious, long running and well attended Crime Book Festival, Krimimessen welcomes international authors and thousands of readers from around the world to partake in all things dangerous and noir. 

In 2017 the theme is set for gluttony, avarice and power as the authors and their audiences explore the theme of GREED. Guests include: Arne Dahl (Sweden), the Best Swedish Crime Novel award winner; Gard Sveen (Norway), 2014 winner of the Glass Key Award, the prestigious Scandinavian Crime writer’s prize, the Riverton Award, and the best Norwegian crime Prize; and 'Dagger in the Library' award winning author, Stuart MacBride (Scotland). 

The programme also includes many of the most popular and best-selling Danish crime writers who are well known outside Denmark. Their main characters have become household names: Jussi Adler-Olsen (Department Q novels with Carl Mørck); Sara Blædel (Louise Rick); Elsebeth Egholm (Dicte); Jesper Stein (Axel Steen); Anna Grue (Dan Sommerdahl); Jens Henrik Jensen (Niels Oxen); and Leif Davidsen – the master of political thrillers.
