And now to something completely different…

All right, my first crime novel “Liv eller død” (“Life or death”), co-written with Maria Helleberg, was published last week. Saturday and Sunday were spent at the magnificent Danish Crime Novel Fair, held at the old state prison in Horsens, presenting and selling the book.

So now what?

Well, in week 19 I’m off to Hald Hovedgaard, a very nice retreat for Danish writers and translators to work on the forthcoming fifth volume of the PLAN B-thriller series. It tells the story of a Danish container ship being seized by Somali pirates in the Bay of Aden – but not everything is at it seems. While chief analyst Morten Hvid fights the pirates off the shores of war-torn Somalia, inspector Johannesen of the Danish Police investigates the death of a young female soldier and embarks on a journey that will take him to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
