Thomas Enger worked as a journalist in the past. In 2010, he made his breakthrough with the crime thriller Burned (Skinndd), which became a worldwide hit even before it was published. Burned is the first of a five-book series about journalist Henning Juul that goes into the depths of Oslo's underbelly, skewering filthy politics and capturing the fast-paced world of 24-hour news. To date, the series' rights have been sold to 28 nations. Enger won the U-prize (best novel Young Adult) for his first book for young adults, a dark fantasy thriller called The Evil Legacy, which he released in 2013.
Another Young Adult thriller novel, Killer Instinct, was published in Norway in 2017. Germany and Iceland have purchased the rights to the film. Enger lives in Oslo and can be found on Twitter @EngerThomas, on Facebook www.facebook.com/thomas.enger.77, and on his website thomasenger.net.
