Meet Johan Theorin and discover the four (deadly) seasons of Öland

Nordic Noir Talks – Johan Theorin

STOCKHOLM | Thursday 6th July at 18:30

The Öland Quartet – dark mystery novels with some supernatural overtones, which mainly take place on the Swedish island of Öland; a small island in the Baltic Sea and a sunny and popular place for tourists to visit in the summer. In the winter however, the island is dark and cold and very few people live there.

The quartet covers the four seasons on the island. The stand-alone psychological thriller The Asylum takes place on the Swedish west coast.

Meet Johan Theorin at the Nordic Noir Talk in the Stockholm shop. Tickets 60:- (incl. refreshments) available at the Stockholm shop or online at www.billetto.se/nordic-noir-theorin
