    1 book
    80 pages (63 comics pages + 12 page illustrated appendix)
    23.0 x 31.5, hardcover
    Will be published in Danish on April 14th, 2023
    Ages 13 and up



    Four high school students have formed a “laziness lodge” with the ignoble purpose of getting through high school physics classes as effortlessly as possible. But soon they begin receiving letters from a mysterious “F” with invitations to meet at various landmarks and locations in Copenhagen, only to be tricked into attending lectures on different aspects of the history of Physics. Every time “F” manages to escape, and they decide to work together to reveal their antagonist’s true identity.

    Reading while learning about the history of Physics

    The purpose of “The Copenhagen Mystery” is twofold: It is a conspiracy thriller set in Copenhagen featuring four youngsters, who try to solve a mystery about who sends them mysterious letters, but the comic also takes the reader through the entire 2.500-year-long development of physics – from the ancient Greeks to the Theory of Everything.

    Best-selling team behind “The Copenhagen Mystery”

    The team behind “The Copenhagen Mystery” also made the highly successful “Ørsted”, the best-selling Danish comic of 2020, now on its sixth printing.
