Kim Leine in Poland with “The Prophets of Eternal Fjord”

Kim Leine’s third novel is a fascinating story of a missionary whose aim is to convert the Inuit to the Danish church based on authentic events. According to Liz Jensen from The Guardian it’s an astonishing, hallucinatory journey into the frozen heart of Denmark’s colonial darkness. Kim Leine’s best-selling and award-winning novel has undeniably evoked disputes over interpretation of the country’s colonial history.


Danish Cultural Institute together with The European Commission Representation in Poland organize  a meeting with the author and reading from his book that takes place on February 7th at 18:00 o’clock at The European Commission Representation’s headquarters. The meeting is part of Literature at Jasna series that is intended to present European literature to Poles, promote cultural exchange and foster better understanding between residents of the European Union.


“The Prophets of Eternal Fjord” has been translated into Polish by Justyna Haber-Biały and Agata Lubowicka and published by W.A.B. Publishing House in 2016. The translators will also attend the meeting.


Kim Leine – born in 1961 in a Danish family in Bø, Norway, lived and worked in Greenland for 15 years. In 2013 he won Nordic Council’s Literature Prize for “The Prophets of Eternal Fjord”.
