En serie spørsmål til nordmenn og
– kvinner som bor eller er på gjennomfart i Sveits.


Krimforfatter og tidligere etterforskningsleder i politiet.

I hvilken forbindelse er du i Sveits/har du til Sveits?

Jeg har faktisk ikke vært i Sveits på nesten 30 år, men 21. november skal jeg til Zürich
og delta på Norgesklubben Sveits sitt Nordic Chambers’ event – TIME

Kan du fortelle leserne våre om din jobb/virke?

Jeg har utgitt over 60 bøker, mest kjent er serien om politiførstebetjent William Wisting.
De er bredt oversatt, blant annet til tysk, fransk og italiensk. Boksuksessen skyldes nok
langt på vei min erfaring som etterforsker. Det gir bøkene en autentisk nerve, et snev av true-crime.

Flest kjenner nok kanskje likevel Wisting gjennom TV-serien med samme navn.

Hva provoserer deg?

Det skal mye til, men skråsikkerhet kombinert med uvitenhet kan irritere.

Hva gjør du om ti år?

Jeg skriver nok fremdeles bøker, men det siste året har jeg også jobbet opp mot
TV-bransjen og dokumentarfilm. Det er interessant form for historiefortelling
som jeg nok kommer til å gjøre mer av.

Hva opplever du som er den største forskjellen på Sveits og Norge?

Jeg tror vi har mer til felles enn hva som skiller oss, men jeg opplever Sveits som et
mer konservativt land enn Norge.

Hvis du kunne endret én ting her i verden – hva ville det vært og hvorfor?

Stort spørsmål, men: fattigdom.


Takk Jørn !

Vi gleder oss til å ta imot deg til høstens flotte arrangement i Zürich 😀
