Overview

A World War II Crime Noir novel.

There is an informer inside the Sabotage Group BB. Death is waiting around every corner. It is time to ask yourself this one question: Who can be trusted?

German-occupied Copenhagen, fall 1944. It has been four and a half years since the Nazi tanks crossed the border. Last year, the Danish Government’s policy of cooperation with the Third Reich failed.

The Danish police force was rounded up a few months ago and deported to concentration camps in Germany; now criminals rule the city streets. There is shortage of almost everything and easy money to be made.

‘The Informer’ is a rapid and raw crime noir tale about one of the darkest times in the history of Denmark.

‘The Informer’ was nominated ‘Best Nordic Crime Novel’ of the year and selected one of the best 36 books ever for a relaxing read on the beach by the major Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende.

Award winning author Steen Langstrup’s work has been translated into several foreign languages including Swedish and Spanish, his books have been filmed and made into radio plays. ‘The Informer’ is his first book to be published in English.

Praise for ‘The Informer’:

‘Outstanding noir novel.’ The Danish newspaper Politiken.

‘This book is more than important … This is a book you simply can’t put down, you will read it all the way to the end once you have opened it.’ The Swedish newspaper Piteå-Tidningen.

‘I really like the style of Steen Langstrup’s writting … It’s almost like the author was there himself to experience the things he writes about.’ The Swedish newspaper Gefle Dagblad.

‘A refreshingly in-your-face world war II thriller … That’s it. That’s it. That’s it.’ The Danish newspaper Weekendavisen.

‘A sympathetic and well told story.’ The Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat.

'Recommended—and not only to sleepless nights.' The Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende.

‘Exciting to the very last word.’ The Danish Magazine Alt for damerne.

‘The style is, of course, highly effective.’ The Swedish newspaper Avesta Tidningen.

‘An absorbing read. The classic game of chess in literary form … a surprising blast of a well-constructed and juicy ending.’ The Finnish magazine Ruumiin Kultturi.

Meet the Author

Award winning Danish author.

Born in 1968, I started out as a cartoonist in the early nineties, writing and drawing cartoons for several magazines in Copenhagen. In 1995, I debuted as an author with two novels, one of them later filmed, and went on to publish books in different genres, always aiming to do things a little different.

I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, with my wife and two kids. I have had several works translated and published in foreign languages. My books have been filmed and made into radio plays.

I have published about twenty books, counting novels, cartoons, collections of short stories and nonfiction.

...

I enjoy my readers as much as they enjoy my writing. Stop by my blog, www.langstrup.com or email me at 2feet (at) steenlangstrup (dot) dk, I answer all emails.
