«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.
Every year Krimfestivalen has more than 40 visiting authors and hosts more than 30 events annually. It is a place for authors and dedicated readers to meet, discuss content and celebrate the crime fiction community.
Krimfestivalen 2024 will take place from Thursday February 29th to Saturday, March 2th. Most of the events can be streamed here at this site.
