If you could pick 3 words to describe your main character Louise, what words would you pick? Have you been a lifelong fan of crime books? If so, can you remember the first crime author you ever read? They're mysteries for children, and I was one of those children! If you could invite 3 crime authors over for dinner, who would you invite? Because this is for Instagram, and you've probably seen all the photos of books and coffee or tea, are you a coffee or tea person? I'm definitely a tea drinker!

What's next for you? It will come out here in February ! Crime by the Book: Was novel-writing something you always aspired to, or was it something that you became involved in unexpectedly? It was never my intention to become a writer! About 25 years ago, I started my own publishing house, just publishing crime novels.

And I was in heaven, because it made me read a lot of crime novels too. I was working as a journalist for many years, doing television programs, and in that job people are so stressed - deadline after deadline, new things always coming up. At one point, I was in charge of a very popular television program in Denmark, and one day in the middle of all that stress, I started just telling myself a story.
It was never something that I planned to be a book - I just became curious about this story that popped into my head. When other people around me were yelling and shouting and stressed out, I would tell myself that story. Maybe it was my way to escape stress - but it turned out to be my first meeting with Louise Rick!

It took me maybe 3 or 4 months before I was aware that I had met a new character, and that maybe I should start writing this story down. It was all in your head? All in my head, and all for fun - just me telling myself a story.
But at one part of the story, I became very curious to know how it would work if it was for real. So I wrote an old fashioned letter to the former chief of the Copenhagen Homicide Department, and asked if it would be possible to meet one of his investigators. So I said to myself, okay Sara, now you are working on your novel.
And that was my way into crime writing! That ties right into one of my favorite things about your books, which is how you keep police work both engaging and true to life. You have lively characters who people love and can relate to, but you also delve into the facts of an investigation, and bring the reader into how the police solve the crime.

How do you make sure the investigations you write continue to be realistic? When I wrote the first 6 novels in the Louise Rick series, I had almost my own team on the homicide department. They were so cool, and so committed. I feel more secure the more I know, and then my imagination can really take off.
So did you spot a house that inspired you for that first scene in the book, with the window? I saw it and I knew exactly where the woman would stand. I think it has something to do with my dyslexia. It had a huge influence on me - I was a slow reader growing up because of it, it was very hard for me. But then there are times when your story takes over, too. When I was writing my first novel, I thought I knew exactly what it would look like - I had it all planned out. And Louise had such a deep reaction - she almost had a breakdown. That was my first experience with the story taking over.
