Haruki Muakami drifts out from 8/1 to 12/1 in the betting market

Haruki Muakami had moved into 8/1 favourite for the Nobel Literature Prize but has since drifted in the betting market in recent months.

Japanese writer Murakami had shortened into the outright favourite with his recent release 'The City and Its Uncertain Walls' released earlier this year.

Murakami was awarded the Princess of Asturias Award for Literature in May which is Spain's top arts prize and that has saw bookmakers change the betting market to put him as favourite.

Since then though he's drifted out to 12/1 in the betting market with the latest odds now putting him as 5th favourite to win the Prize this year.

When is the Nobel Prize for Literature awarded?

The 2023 Nobel Prize for Literature winner is set to be awarded later this year with a date of 5 October 2023 the earliest it will be announced by the Swedish Academy in Sweden.

The prize is then officially awarded in a ceremony on 10 December 2023.

The 2023 Nobel Committee consists of:

  • Anders Olsson
  • Mats Malm
  • Per Wastberg
  • Anne Sward
  • Ellen Mattson
  • Steve Sem-Sandberg
