Saturday 21st September from 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm BST£8 – £9
Scandinavian crime fiction continues to steamroll all before it with an irresistible cocktail of bleak landscapes, melancholy and angst. But, just as there’s much more to Sweden than Abba and Ikea, there’s a lot more to Nordic Noir than that.
Meet three northern stars who are shaking up the established view of Scandi crime writing. The Courier, a thrilling tale of intrigue in and after World War Two, is the latest from Kjell Ola Dahl, the Godfather of Nordic Noir. Thomas Enger’s Inborn is a chilling exploration of the nature of evil and how well we can truly know our families or ourselves. Sif Sigmarsdóttir’s The Sharp Edge of a Snowflake is a captivating, feminist YA thriller.
