Over the past decade, the icy winds of Nordic noir have swept through the worlds of crime fiction, feature film and television drama. The mood (gloomy and bleak) and look (dark and grim) combined with compelling narratives, strong female characters and the distinctive landscapes of Scandinavia have attracted huge numbers of devotees globally. Professor Sue Turnbull, who co-authored the Nordic noir entry for the Oxford Research Encyclopaedia of Criminology and Criminal Justice, will explore this phenomenon with the aid of TV clips and a panel of writers: Leigh Redhead, Hanna Lofgren and Janice Simpson.
