Crime Fiction Alphabet 2011: D is for Davidsen, Leif

Leif Davidsen (born 25 July 1950 in Otterup) is a Danish author. Educated as a journalist, in 1977 he started working in Spain as a freelance journalist for Danmarks Radio. In 1980 he began covering Soviet news with frequent news reports to Danmarks Radio from Russia. From 1984 to 1988 he was stationed in Moscow. As a journalist he has travelled extensively around the world. When Davidsen returned to Denmark he became chief editor of Danmarks Radio’s foreign news desk. From 1996 he edited a TV series called “Danish Dream” about Denmark today. In 1999, he became a full time writer. Davidsen writes political thrillers, which depict life of modern man in a changing world. Even if many of the characters are of Danish origin, the settings of the stories are often abroad. Davidsen published his first book ‘Uhellige alliancer’ or ‘The Sardine Deception’ in 1984. It is a story of intrigue in the Spanish Basque Country shortly after Franco’s death.  (Taken from Wikipedia).
