HEART OF DARKNESS
With the astronomical rise in popularity of all things dark, deadly, and northern european, it is clearly the perfect time to once again celebrate the genre of Nordic Noir in expo form. NORDICANA, the UK’s first ever expo celebrating Nordic fiction, television and film, returns to London on February 1st & 2nd at The Old Truman Brewery. The genre’s unrelentingly suspenseful brand of crime fiction has today become the benchmark by which the worlds of make-believe politics, murder and investigation are measured.
The event will play host to some of the genre’s biggest stars, including The Bridge’s incredible lead detectives Sofia Helin and Kim Bodnia (Saga Norén & Martin Rohde) and Borgen’s leading-lady Sidse Babbett Knudsen, alongside international best-selling authors and other familiar faces from the film and television world.
Amongst the signing sessions, panel discussions, Q&As, and exclusive screenings of forthcoming Nordic TV and cinema, fans will be able to watch the final two episodes of Season 2 of The Bridge (currently airing on BBC Four), in the company of the show’s lead actors.
A jam-packed, 2-day celebration of all-things Nordic, including food, drink, fashion and furnishings, NORDICANA is a must for UK Scandiphiles and lovers of the Nordic Noir genre.
