Forshaw explores the sounds of Nordic Noir TV drama

Danish composer Halfdan E has scored all three seasons of ‘Borgen’. His music won the Fipa d´Or Grand Prize in 2012 for best score.

Barry Forshaw has published a fascinating article on the CrimeTime blog, and wanted to tell us in the Nordic Noir Book Club about it.

Barry Forshaw: “I met the talented composer Halfdan E at a meal at the Danish ambassador’s for the stars and creative team of such shows as Borgen and The Killing – and I discovered we had a connection. I’d written the introduction for the Norvik Press edition of Dan Turrell’s Murder in the Dark, and Halfdan had collaborated with the late writer on the CD ‘An Introduction.’ I asked the composer about his work on Borgen.”

  1. Fascinating about Bach. And always interesting to hear about the missteps in the creative process. Thanks for it. On a Borgen tangent, here’s a post I wrote about swearing in Borgen’s subtitles as well as on Irish tv http://wp.me/p3Se2x-25
