VJ Books Presents Author Jussi Adler-Olsen!

Jussi Adler OlsenAn exceptionally varied life has created an exceptionally varied author - Jussi Adler-Olsen (born August 2, 1950 in Copenhagen).

Political studies, an education in cinematography, as well as growing up as the son of a psychiatric doctor have given Jussi Adler-Olsen the insight to write on subjects as different as extreme mental illness and international conspiracies.

He began his writing career with the international thrillers Alfabethuset (The Alphabet House), Og hun takkede guderne (The Company Basher) and Washington Dekretet (The Washington Decree), after which he set his sights on Denmark, where his Department Q crime thrillers have turned him into a bestselling author. Jussi Adler-Olsen is now published in more than 40 languages and his novels have been sold in more than 10 million copies.

He became a full-time author in 2007.
