Norwegian former police officer and one of Norway's most popular crime writers for adults and young readers. He was born in Porsgrunn, Telemark, as Jørn Lier Olsen and grew up in nearby Bamble. He enjoyed writing from an early age, and he worked on various school and student magazines without any thought of a writing career; he was more interested studying to be an engineer or a chef. Horst became a police officer almost by accident after replying to an advert in which the Norwegian Police University College were looking for applicants.
