Nordic Noir Talks: Meet Jens Lapidus

Meet Jens Lapidus – Nordic Noir Talks

STOCKHOLM | Thursday 27th April at 18:30

The Stockholm Noir trilogy has already become a phenomenon in Sweden and abroad. His own professional experience as a criminal defense lawyer has given him unusual insights into a world that most people would rather not acknowledge.

Critics have tagged him ”a Swedish James Ellroy”, a truth-telling author who writes about life on the streets and depicts the underbelly of Swedish society.

Just released in English: Stockholm Delete.

Meet Jens on Thursday 27th April at 18:30 in the Stockholm shop on Södermannagatan 22.

Advance tickets (60:- incl. refreshments) are available online at www.billetto.se/nordic-noir-lapidus or at the Stockholm bookshop

Join the Crime Reading Group

UPPSALA

Reader of mystery novels?
Lover of crimes?

Join the Crime Reading Group in Uppsala! We meet once a month to discuss a mystery novel, either a more hard-boiled, noir kind of book (Tough Crime), or a more classic crime (British Crime). Leading the discussions is author James van Loon.

On Monday 24 April we’re dissecting Sunset City by Melissa Ginsburg and on Monday 22 May we discuss what’s making A High Mortality of Doves by Kate Ellis fly. (The novel that is, the doves aren’t flying anywhere...)

Sign up at the bookshop.

Nordic Noir Talks: Meet Carin Gerhardsen

Meet Carin Gerhardsen

STOCKHOLM | Thursday 6th April at 18:30

Meet Carin Gerhardsen on Thursday – if you dare…

Meet Carin Gerhardsen on Thursday 6th April in our Stockholm shop. We say ’if you dare’ only because she’s literally been killing off people in southern Stockholm for years in her Hammarby novels (to be fair she’s been solving the crimes as well with a little help from Detective Inspector Conny Sjöberg and his murder investigation team at the Hammarby police).

Meet Carin at our first Nordic Noir Talk on Thursday 6th April at 18:30 at the Stockholm shop on Södermannagatan 22.

Advance tickets (60:- incl. refreshments) are available online at www.billetto.se/nordic-noir-gerhardsen or at the Stockholm bookshop

Next up in the series is Jens Lapidus on April 27th.
