The Friedrich Glauser Prize

The Friedrich Glauser Prize (Friedrich-Glauser-Preis, sometimes Friedrich-Glauser-Krimipreis) honors the best crime novel written in German. It is named after Swiss author Friedrich Glauser, considered to be the first crime novelist to publish in German.

Debuting in 1987, the prizes were initially given out for the Best Crime Novel and a Certificate of Merit — the Glauser Prize — to a single novelist; the awards have since been expanded to include Best Children's or Young Adult's Crime Novel, Best Debut Novel, and Best Short Story.
