Do you have an investigator within you?

Criminals use technology to commit organized and serious crime. They use new technology and new services to commit crimes that affect society on a large scale. Can your digital skills contribute to Kripos' success in the investigation into the abduction of Helene Iversen, 19 years old?  

How to take part

Through a realistic competition, you will be able to pursue tracks and solve the case for Kripos.

Assemble a team consisting of 1-5 participants, preferably 4-5 participants. The case consists of several tasks, and a team with different expertise can be an advantage.


Registration is available one week before the competition starts, and it is possible to register until the day the solution is presented.

Register your team via this website (link will be available later).
The team has 24 hours to solve the case, but it is also possible to solve it in shorter time.
All assignments are based on tasks Kripos faces and methods they use in real surveys. Throughout the competition, you will get to know different parts of Kripos, and especially the part that works with surveys on the internet and other digital tracks.
