Nordic Noir: Hakan Nesser & Arnaldur Indridason in conversation with Barry Forshaw

Monday 20th July 2015 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Bestselling authors Arnaldur Indridason and Hakan Nesser have enthralled millions of readers the world over with their award-winning detective series. Tonight we welcome these two titans of Nordic Noir to the stage for an evening discussing their latest work, and a life in crime.

Recipient of the Nordic Glass Key, the CWA Gold Dagger and the RBA International Prize for Crime Writing, Icelandic heavyweight Indridason has delighted fans with his long-running Detective Erlendur series. Having recently concluded the narrative in Strange Shores, the hugely popular author has since taken us right back to the beginning with Rekjavik Nights and the brand-new Oblivion, unpacking the early cases of then newly-promoted detective Erlendur.

Splitting his time between his native Sweden and London, Hakan Nesser has been leading readers in ever-decreasing circles for over twenty-five years. Famed for his Inspectors Van Veeteren and Barbarotti series, Nesser has been awarded both Sweden's Best First Crime Novel and Best Crime Novel Awards, as well as being the only person to have won the Danish Rosenkrantzprisen twice. Now, in his latest novel The Living and the Dead in Winsford, Nesser takes us to the desolate Exmoor landscape as a couple, beleaguered by past secrets, find their rural getaway is not quite the sanctuary they had anticipated.

Exclusively on stage together for this event, this is a rare opportunity to hear two masters of contemporary crime fiction discuss their craft with leading Scandinavian crime expert Barry Forshaw,
