In German language.

After the extremely successful author reading at the Knottnkino cinema in Vöran last year, the Hafling-Vöran-Meran 2000 Tourist Association is inviting you to a new edition of this event concept in summer 2024. Thriller fans can look forward to the successful author Simone Dark. The popular film adaptations of the Bolzano crime thrillers are the model for her books: the author Simone Dark, who now lives in South Tyrol, draws literary pictures of human abysses, packed into captivating stories. The wonderfully described picturesque settings in South Tyrol contrast with dark machinations and exciting plot lines. Together with Herbert, Simone Dark will read from her latest works "Familienehre" and "Schwöre, dass du schweigst" and enter into an informal dialogue with the audience. About the author The author Simone Dark was born in 1982 and grew up in Breisach am Rhein. After studying near Mainz, she moved to South Tyrol, where she still lives today. In 2022, she published "Die Taten der Opfer", the first crime novel featuring Magnabosco and Pasqualina, as well as the two Bolzano crime novels "Verspieltes Glück" and "Vergeltung" with Edition Raetia. The second Magnabosco crime thriller, "The King of Tiers", and the third Bolzano crime thriller, "Family Honour", followed in 2023, and "Swear Silence", the third case for the investigative duo Magnabosco and Pasqualina, was published in 2024. Programme: Meeting point is at 6.30 pm at the Knottnkino car park (above the Eggerhof farm) in Vöran, from where we walk together to the Knottnkino in 45 minutes. Once at the top, we experience the unique book presentation, after which we walk back to the car park by lantern light (lanterns are provided by the information office), returning at around 9.30 pm. Price: for free Registration: online at or at the Hafling information office by 4.00 pm the day before In case of bad weather, the book presentation will be moved to a guesthouse. Photographs and videos may be taken at the event for the purpose of documenting and promoting the event and the area. The recordings may be used and published on websites, in social networks and in the media in compliance with data protection regulations.
