Borgen, Jens. Jens Borgen was created by “Roy Roberts,” the pseudonym of the Norwegian author Alex Brinchmann, and appeared in sixteen novels from 1927 to 1971, beginning with Bengt Bondes Hemmelighet.

Jens Borgen is a Norwegian lawyer and amateur detective who solves puzzle cases with the help of his Watson, the author Roy Roberts. In the early Borgen novels there’s a certain amount of sympathy for racist and fascist ideas, though this sympathy disappears during the 1930s.
