About Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen

After some years as a teacher, Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen has embarked on a new career as a writer of crime fiction. She lives in Denmark, near the North Sea, and she writes mysteries in English as well as her native language.

In 2010 she sold her first stories to American magazines and publishers. She set out writing some cosy mysteries and collections of short stories. Her most popular cosy is "Murder deLight" (also titled "The Cosy Knave") - a humorous and cosy novel featuring village constable Archibald Penrose and his plucky fiancée, the librarian Rhapsody Gershwin.

In 2012 she published her first serious psychological mystery, "Anna Märklin's Family Chronicles", a bestseller set in Denmark. "Anna Märklin" is a standalone, whereas Jakobsen's latest book, "North Sea Cottage" is the first in a planned series about the amateur detective and writer Tora Skammelsen from an isolated village in Jutland. The Tora Skammelsen series has been well received in Denmark, and more stories will be published soon.

A sweet little ghost story. The only problem was that I wanted more! I wasn't ready for it to end. Definitely going to have to have more Dorte!

Lovely little story - and I really like the title! Great mix of young love, ghosts that materialize and disappear into thin air, and of course - Murder. Ending on a note of hope is a nice way to wrap it up :-)

A charming short story of love, ghosts, and murder. Heather Farm is a quick, fun read with a twist or two at the end.

This delightful story has the perfect combination of mystery and suspense with a touch of the supernatural added for good measure. The setting is ideal for the story which draws the reader in and holds them throughout. Definitely one of Dorte's best!

I missed this when it was first serialized on Dorte's blog, so am glad to have had a second chance now. A nice little ghost story: a young newlywed couple in their very first country house--now what could possibly go wrong? As Margot has stated, the setting is definitely an added enhancement of the tale.

Heather Farm is a very effective combination of suspense and mystery with a solid background story of love. The pace is just right and the threads of the story come together very effectively. There's a terrific rural-home setting, too. I recommend it!
