HANNE-VIBEKE HOLST has been a bestselling author and a strong voice in public life in Denmark and Scandinavia for more than thirty years. She debuted in 1980 and had her literary breakthrough with the Therese Trilogy, which includes the novels Therese’s Condition, Real Life and A Happy Woman, that came out between 1992 and 1998 and chronicles the story of a young woman caught between motherhood and career, expectations, and ambition. Her feminist memoir, My Aunt’s Migraine, was an outstanding bestseller and she followed it with three novels examining power, politics and gender; The Crown Princess, The Queen’s Gambit and The Regicide. Also known as The Power Trilogy, the novels were adapted into three successful miniseries by Swedish Television.
IN 2017, ALMOST three years before the Covid Pandemic, she published the eerily foreboding novel Like the Plague.
HER LATEST NOVEL, Warrior Without a Mask was published in fall 2022. It follows the story of the sculptor Sonja Ferlov Mancoba. Hanne-Vibeke Holst has been awarded with both the Golden Laurel’s and The Reader’s Book Prize for her authorship.
