Rasmussen. Rasmussen was created by “Peter Anker” (Ole Ny), a Kay Nielsens Forlag pseudonym, and appeared in the Danish dime novel Styrmand Rasmussen #1-240 (1943-1948).

Rasmussen is a first mate on a tramp steamer which travels around the world. Rasmussen finds and defeats pirates, smugglers, and spies. After World War Two ended the authors of the Rasmussen stories portrayed him as being active throughout the war, fighting against the Axis powers in a variety of locales and on both land and sea. Rasmussen appears in stories with titles like “The Pirate Queen,” “The Magic Circus,” and “Dead Ship in Sight.”
