About Krimfestivalen

«One of the best Crime-writings festivals around the world»

– The Guardian

Norway has the world’s highest percentage of crime fiction readers. Whereas Scandinavian crime fiction was once considered a cult genre, it now has a well-established position in the literary market. Krimfestivalen aims to celebrate and explore this phenomenon in an international perspective.

Krimfestivalen has more than 60 visiting authors and hosts 50 events annually. It is a place for authors and dedicated readers to meet, discuss content and celebrate the crime fiction community.

Next year’s festival will take place from Thursday February 29th to Saturday, March 2th. And you can stream many of the events here at this site.
