Barry Forshaw is looking forward to interviewing Arnaldur Indridason at Harrogate Theakstons – & they’ve got a competition to win his Nordic Noir & Euro Noir books! Visit http://harrogateinternationalfestivals.com/crime/news/competition-time/
Please do also keep an eye out for Barry’s new book on Sex and Film which has a big Scandinavian section, of course.
The Nordic Noir Book Club is delighted to announce the next event in the series, which will take place on 14 June, 6pm – 8pm, at the Horse Hospital (Colonnade, London WC1N 1JD). Please register here: http://tinyurl.com/6g7wdn5, the cost is £5.
This event hopes to offer inspiration for your favourite Nordic crime novels to read over the summer. Nordic Noir members, bloggers and new readers are all welcome to join us for some wine and snacks during an evening of sharing, discussion, crime quizzes, and much more. Please bring along your favourite Nordic crime novel, and think about how you want to persuade others to read it! We look forward to seeing you on 14 June! Send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
