Lene Kaaberbøl (born in 1960) is a Danish writer born in Copenhagen, Denmark.[1] Her work primarily consists of children's fantasy series and crime fiction for adults. She received the Nordic Children's Book Prize in 2004.[2]


Born in Copenhagen, Lene Kaaberbøl grew up in the small town of Malling, in the countryside south of Aarhus in Jutland. She got her fist book published when she was only 15 years old. It was also the first book of what became the Tina series[3] and it has never been translated. Graduated from Aarhus Katedralskole and educated with a degree in both English and Dramaturgy from Aarhus University, she has worked as a high school teacher and a translator, but her working life has been very diverse and she also made a living as a cleaning lady at one time. Having resided on Zealand, Lene now lives in Beder, close to Malling.[4][5][6]
