JESPER STEIN
Prize-winning Danish noir by Jesper Stein
 
The Nørrebro area of Copenhagen provides the backdrop to Jesper Stein's series of crime novels about the hard-boiled and uncompromising Inspector Axel Steen, who never gives less than 100% to solving a case.
                      Axel Steen is his own man, refusing to let other people run his life. He is locked in an eternal battle with those in power – both within the police force and among the city's criminals – but he's also sensitive and unsure of himself, qualities that have led to an abuse of weed, alcohol and pills that occasionally escalates when he's under pressure.
                      The investigation, the hunt for the criminals and Steen's chaotic private life – he's divorced and has a daughter – are told in a raw, realistic and sometimes poetic tone known as '2200 Noir', a reference to the Nørrebro postcode. Stein's novels have been highly praised by critics both nationally and internationally, and among other awards he has won the Danish Crime Academy's Debutant Prize for the first instalment in the series, Unrest, as well as the Booksellers' prestigious Golden Laurel for the fourth in the series, Aisha.
