London obsessed with Scandinavia?

The Nordic Noir Book Club was mentioned in an article published on London Loves Business for which I was interviewed. The article captures many examples of the current interest in all things Scandinavian in Britain and London these days including food and design (with a good selection of Scandinavian hot-spots in London).

In the interview I claimed there might be a relationship between the recession and the wave of interest in the Scandinavian countries:

“I think there’s a reason that this has coincided with the recession. British people are familiar with Scandinavian values of social equality and social justice, which are some of the biggest issues in this country at the moment. There’s a sense of the nostalgic values of home, family and nature too, which is what Scandinavia seems to represent.”
