He worked for a number of years as a journalist and in 1992 his first book was published, Med livet i h�lene (Pursued by Life), a comedy stand-up novel. 1994 saw the publication of Uden sikker viden (Uncertainty), a thriller which has been sold to 25 countries - including Germany, UK, USA, France, Italy and most recently Japan - making Michael Larsen one of the most translated Danish authors.
