There's almost no truth to the rumor that members of the Minnesota Crime Wave met because they have the same parole officer. 

Established in the fall of 2000, the Crime Wave consists of mystery writers William Kent Krueger, Carl Brookins, and Ellen Hart.  Between them they have published more than 30 novels and have received nearly two dozen local, regional and national awards for their writing.
