Jørn Lier Horst has with his award-winning novels about William Wisting joined the elite of Nordic crime fiction writers. Having worked as a head of investigations before becoming a full-time author, Horst brings a unique brand of suspense and realism to the table. Besides his novels for grown readers, Horst has also gained recognition for his unparalleled ability to thrill young readers with charming mysteries. His standing as the Norwegian king of crime fiction for all ages was cemented when he created the Detective Agency No. 2 and CLUE series, both the most popular children’s book series in their respective age categories.

At the book fair Horst will be speaking about his children’s books as well as his two titles for adults available in Arabic, namely Death Deserved (2018) and Smoke Screen (2019) on Al Arabi, together with judge and previous investigation inspector, Ashram El Ashmawi.
