Join us for an all-Scandinavian evening of thrilling bestselling crime fiction with Jørn Lier Horst (Norway), Lone Theils (Denmark) and Stefan Ahnhem (Sweden). Prepare for battle, as the authors and audience engage in the historic sibling rivalry of the Scandinavian countries to decide, once and for all, which of the Scandinavian countries is more “Nordic Noir”.
When: Monday 22 May 2017, 6:00pm – 9:00pm (Event starts at 7:00pm, but if you arrive at 6:00 food is available to order, as there is a delivery service to the table at Juju’s from Poppies Fish and Chips across the road)
Where: JuJu’s Bar and Stage at the Old Truman Brewery. Access is from Ely’s Yard, Truman Brewery, 15 Hanbury Street, London E1 6QR.
Jørn Lier Horst will present his latest novel When It Grows Dark (Sandstone Press), a prequel to his now 10-volume William Wisting series.
Lone Theils will present her debut novel about the journalist Nora Sand, Fatal Crossing (Arcadia) – a true Scandinavian crime novel, which takes place mostly in the UK.
Stefan Ahnhem will present the second instalment in his Fabian Risk series, The Ninth Grave (Head of Zeus).
The event will also feature the launch of the founder of the Nordic Noir Book Club, Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen’s book Scandinavian Crime Fiction (Bloomsbury).
