Christoffer Petersen

Biography

I write chilling thrillers and crime stories set in Greenland, Scandinavia, and Scotland. I spent seven years in Greenland, working at, among other places, the Greenland Police Academy. My experiences have shaped my stories, as did the seven years I spent in Scotland before “becoming Danish”.

My thrillers feature the first female member of the elite Danish Sirius Sledge Patrol: Konstabel Fenna Brongaard, a retired Greenlandic policeman: David Maratse, and, soon, a Scottish-born Danish Detective: Freja Hansen.

Series

Constable David Maratse
Crime and adventure in the Arctic. If Jack London wrote Police Procedurals, Constable David Maratse would fit right in. The Constable David Maratse series of crime novellas is set in Greenland, following the early career of Greenlandic Police Constable David Maratse. Each novella features aspects of Greenlandic culture and tradition, based on the author's experience of living and working in Greenland for seven years. Arctic Noir doesn't get more authentic than this.
