Danish Crime Novel Awards

The Danske Kriminalakademi (Danish Crime Academy) gives out several awards for books published the previous year. The Palle Rosenkrantz Prisen recognizes the best crime fiction novel published in Danish. It is named in honor of Palle Rosenkrantz (1867-1941), who is considered the first Danish crime fiction author; his novel Mordet i Vestermarie (Murder in Vestermarie) was published in 1902. The Harald Mogensen Prisen recognizes the best thriller. It is named after Harald Mogensen (1912-2002), a Danish editor, in recognition of his contribution to the field of literary crime.

The English translated title, if available, is listed in parentheses.
