You’ll find the schedules for Nordicana in London on February 1 and 2 below.
Blimey! In one year this has gone from an experiment to being an incredible fixture on the UK book, TV and film landscape. Well done to the brave organisers.
I will be giving an illustrated talk on The Killing on both days, discussing the series and the character of Sarah Lund in particular, with key clips from the production. The book of The Killing III will be published on February 13. But if you’re at Nordicana you can buy a pre-publication copy I’ll happily sign.
Hope to see you there. You can find ticket details here.
I’ll be talking at Maidenhead Library on the evening of March 18 as part of the Windsor Festival of Crime Writing. You can get the full list of events here.
Nordicana was a revelation when it debuted in London earlier this year… a festival of Nordic literature, film and TV and lots of culture too. Where else could you buy genuine Smörgåsbord and listen to Sidse Babett Knudsen talk about Borgen?
It’s back in February, in a new location, the Old Truman Brewery in London. Bigger and better. I’ll be there both days giving an audiovisual talk in which I try to analyse all three adaptations and TV series of The Killing and answer the question: what makes Sarah Lund tick?
And on the first day, February 1, Pan Macmillan will be launching the adaptation of The Killing III too with a special event. Details to follow shortly but I can promise a few surprises.
You can follow Nordicana on Facebook, see an outline schedule at Nordic Noir and track the even on Twitter @NordicanaUK. Here’s the schedule so far… but expect lots more to be announced over the next few weeks.
I’ll be at the Blackheath Halls in London on March 12 to give an audio-visual talk about The Killing, the character of Sarah Lund, and my thoughts about the series and its adaptation to books. Some clips from the series will be included too in order to illustrate a few points (and make it not the usual author-yaks-about-his-new-book act).
This will be based upon two similar talks to be given at Nordicana on February 1 and 2 — more details on them later when the full schedule, which will include the launch of the book of The Killing III, is finalised.
