Abstract:

"The information-packed study examines and celebrates books, films, and TV adaptations: from Sjöwall & Wahlöö's highly influential Martin Beck series, through Henning Mankell's Wallander, to Stieg Larsson's groundbreaking The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Cult TV hits such as the Danish The Killing, The Bridge and the political thriller Borgen are also explored, along with the massively successful books and films of the current king of the field, Norway's Jo Nesbo. Nordic Noir anatomizes the nigh-obsessive appeal of the subject and highlights every key book, film and TV show. For both the beginner and the aficionado, this is a hugely informative, highly accessible guide (and shopping list) for an essential crime genre."--Page 4 of cover.
