Did you stay up late reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Did you record every episode of The Killing and enjoy The Bridge? If so, you are not alone. Join our well-read panel to discuss why British readers can’t get enough Nordic noir. To tell us about the history of the genre, we are joined by Barry Forshaw, whose new book, Death in a Cold Climate, charts the rise and history of crime writing from the Nordic states; David Hewson, who has written a novelisation of The Killing, and Ann Cleeves, a huge fan of Scandinavian crime fiction and author of many best-selling crime novels, including the Vera series recently broadcast on ITV. Chaired by Elizabeth Day of The Observer.
