The coming Nordic Noir book club event (Shadows in the Snow) on 3 February has added Francis Hopkinson to the bill also featuring Håkan Nesser.
Francis Hopkinson of Left Bank Pictures will be joining us to discuss the UK adaptation of Henning Mankell’s Wallander, starring Kenneth Brannagh. As executive producer of the series, Hopkinson was a key figure in the decision-making processes behind the programmes. He will share his unique overview of the programmes with us, taking us all the way from the inspiration for the series to the finishing touches, and will join our discussion of imagery of Sweden in crime fiction.
Left Bank Pictures is an independent television and film production company founded in July 2007 by Andy Harries, Marigo Kehoe and Francis Hopkinson. Hopkinson’s production credits include a range of high-profile drama series.
