nordicana The UKs first ever show celebrating 
Scandinavian crime & thriller fiction & film

A quick glance at the best-seller lists for novels and DVD box sets and it is obvious that Scandinavian crime fiction and drama have become a cultural phenomenon here in the UK. 

Kick-started by the novel ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ and the subsequent films, Scandinavian crime drama, or ‘Nordic Noir’ has gone from strength to strength with the screen adaptations of Henning Mankell’s ‘Wallander’ followed by the original Danish police procedural drama ‘The Killing’ which won over the hearts and minds of the UK media and public making Sarah Lund (and that jumper) a household name.

The UK’s love affair with these compelling and atmospheric dramas from our Northern European cousins shows no sign of abating, demonstrated by the success of BBC4’s most recent acquisition ‘Arne Dahl’ and the fervent anticipation for the third series of ‘Borgen’.

The Nordicana Show is a unique event, which will bring the enthusiastic and dedicated fans of Nordic Noir’s superlative TV shows, films and crime novels together for a 2-day celebration in association with Arrow Films’ Nordic Noir label the leading UK distributor of Nordic Noir on DVD and Blu-ray, and the global literary network English Pen.

The Nordicana Show will play host to the stars of the hugely popular BBC Four TV series’ and best-selling authors with exclusive premieres, panel discussions, signings, retail stands for books, DVD and  Blu-ray, food and drink and much more. The setting for this event is The Farmiloe Building in Clerkenwell, an elegant former Victorian glassworks, which will provide a striking backdrop. 

 15th – 16th June 2013
The Farmiloe Building – 34-35 St. John Street, London, EC1
