Danish Danska English Enska Fiction Franska French Hungarian Ljóð Macedonian Makedónska Poetry Skáldverk Swedish Sænska Ungverska

Kristín Eiríksdóttir made her mark on the literary scene in a big way with her collection of short stories, Doris Dies in 2010. Critics agreed that a new, fully-fledged author had arrived with one of the most significant works of fiction of the year. Her voice is strong and importunate – one of the most original of her generation.
