Gisa Klönne is one of Germany’s top crime writers,

say German journalists. High class – gripping – dense – magnificent – psychological - unputdownable - are other reviews of my detective novels. My third novel, NIGHT WITHOUT SHADOWS, received the Friedrich Glauser Writing Award for best novel of 2009. This is the most important prize for crime literature in the German-speaking countries.

The main character in my novels is the headstrong and vulnerable Judith Krieger, a detective inspector in the murder squad of Cologne, one of Germany’s largest cities. Like all my protagonists, Judith has a past that wasn’t always rosy. But she still dreams of justice – knowing full well it rarely exists.

Read more about my books and find out about my work as a writer. Take a look at the settings and get to know Judith Krieger and her younger colleague Manni Korzilius.

Enjoy your investigations,
