Nordic Noir

Henning Mankell

Philadelphia author Joe Queenan recently visited Sweden for the BBC World Service and recorded a fascinating podcast on the phenomenon of Scandinavian crime fiction.

Queenan explores the social stressors that are making the Nordic region such fecund ground for popular fiction. You can listen to or download the podcast at the BBC World Service .
