French author and left-wing politician of Belgian descent, best known for his romans noirs.

He frequently uses fictional settings to transport social critique; his writings are characterized by a sobering social realism. An anti-fascist, he has also written on the Alsace Soviet Republic, on eugenicist Alexis Carrel, on Holocaust denial, etc.

In his book Le Goût de la vérité (1996), he accuses the Ras l'front cofounder Gilles Perrault of being "fascist".

In July 2001, the left-wing weekly Politis denounced Daeninckx as "using Stalin's methods".

He contributes to the website Amnistia.net in which wrote many former members of Red Brigades (such as Enrico Porsia or Corrado Balocco).

Daeninckx won the Prix Goncourt de la Nouvelle (2012) for L'Espoir en contrebande.
