Jussis crime book café

Scandinavian thrillers and delicious cakes

If you enjoy Scandinavian detective stories and tasty cake, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Have you read the latest thriller by Jussi Adler-Olsen yet? Would you like to be hot on the heels of a murderer in some of the remotest locations in Iceland? Well…in your imagination at least? If so, you’ll feel right at home at Jussi. This unique café and bookshop in one specialises in Scandinavian detective novels!

It’s fika time!

Browse through Scandinavian crime novels, sip a cup of coffee and enjoy homemade cake while soaking up the cosy atmosphere created by the stylish Scandi décor. Vegan bookworms certainly won’t go home wanting either as there are plenty of dairy-free cake and soy milk specialties on the daily menu. What’s more, every Sunday everyone gets together to watch the TV crime drama Tatort.

FYI: in Sweden and Finland, sitting back and having a rest, enjoying a coffee with family and friends and taking a break from everyday life is called ‘fika’.

Everything from Astrid Lindgren to Henning Mankell

Jussi is a perfect destination for the whole family: besides detective stories, you can also find a wide selection of children’s books by Scandinavian authors such as Astrid Lindgren and Sven Nordqvist.

Who’s Jussi?

Anyone familiar with the Nordic detective scene will no doubt know what’s behind the name Jussi. It’s the Finnish equivalent to John and a popular name in Scandinavia. Famous authors such as the Danish Adler-Olsen and Inspector Wallander’s dog in Henning Mankell’s crime novels are called Jussi.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
