Karim Miské



Karim Miské, born 1964, is a French writer. He works as a journalist and documentary filmmaker for ARTE. In 2012, he won the Grand prix de littérature policière for his novel Arab Jazz. His film Juden & Muslime: So nah und doch so fern!/Jews & Muslims: So Far, So Close! won multiple awards.

First off, Karim Miské has written a devilishly thrilling detective novel that is much more than this: he also personifies an ‘early warning’ note about any type of fanaticism, a portrayal of the (a)morality of our time and a declaration of love to literature.
