Crime Novelist, Andrea SchenkelCrime Novelist, Andrea Schenkel
Tuesday, May 12, 3:30 - 5:00 pm

We are pleased to present Andrea Maria Schenkel. Ms. Schenkel  is a literary crime novelist from Germany. Her 2006 book, Tannöd (Nautilus), took the literary world by storm, selling over one million copies. The  award-winning book has been published in more than 20 languages and, in the United States, under the title The Murder Farm (Quercus, 2014). In 2009, the work was released as a film. Her second book, Kalteis, also a  best-selling novel, will be published in the United States this year under the title Ice Cold.

Both books won Germany’s Deutsche Krimi Preis, which is annually awarded to the country’s best crime novel. Schenkel is the first author to win the prize in back-to-back years. In 2008, Tannöd also won Sweden’s Martin Beck Award, which is given to the best crime novel translated into Swedish.

Since the publication of these best-selling works, Schenkel has authored Bunker (2009, Nautilus), Finsterau (Hoffmann und Campe, 2012), and Täuscher (Hoffmann und Campe, 2013), and edited a volume of Christmas-themed crime stories, White Snow, Red Blood (Ullstein, 2010).

Recently, she has collaborated with SAX Allemande, an award-winning chamber trio for classical saxophone. The team created “Mendelssohn Lieder ohne Worte” (Songs without Words), a play that blends Schenkel’s words with the trio’s music.

Schenkel lives in Regensburg, Germany and in the New York metropolitan area
