About the Author
PETER HOEG was born in 1957 and followed various callings - dancer, actor, fencer, sailor, mountaineer - before he turned seriously to writing. He published his first novel in 1988, a book which was acclaimed in Denmark by Information as evidence enough that Hoeg was "the foremost writer of his generation". It is now published in English as The History of Danish Dreams. With the publication of his crime novel Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow he achieved an international reputation and found a settled place on the bestseller lists.
