What’s New in Nordic Noir?

Saturday 9th June: 13.00

Antti Tuomainen, Johana Gustawsson, Lilja Sigurdardottir

In association with Orenda Books

Thrilling Scandinavian and Nordic crime fiction remains one of the bestselling and most engaging genres. We are delighted to be joined by three of the most innovative authors writing thrillers today, for a one-off UK event in association with Orenda Books.

Antti Tuomainen (Finland) is the critically acclaimed author known as ‘the King of Helsinki Noir’. His latest page-turning masterpiece is The Man Who Died.

Johana Gustawsson (France via Sweden) is a former political journalist and the author of Keeper, a compelling murder case that weaves its way from Sweden to London and from the 19th century to the present day.

Lilja Sigurdardottir (Iceland) is the international bestselling author of Snare. Set in a Reykjavík still covered in the dust of the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, and with a fast-paced and chilling plot and intriguing characters, Snare is an outstandingly original and sexy thriller from one of the most exciting new names in crime fiction.

The authors will read from their books and discuss what drives the enduring interest in this area of writing.
