Nordic Noir Night (special event)

Have you ever wondered what characterizes the NORDIC NOIR that surrounds Scandinavia? Have you heard about Scandinavian design items, books about “hygge” and Nordic crime fiction? And have you thought about whether there is something specifically ‘Nordic’ about the Scandinavian cultural products – or is it just a brand, a cultural cliché?

Whether you’ve heard about it or not, we’re inviting you to a fun and social Night of Nordic Noir! We’re guaranteeing you a both “hyggelig” and spooky evening with recommendations for your next crime novel must-read, an interactive detective game and quiz to round off the night. And who knows – maybe we’ll also get the answer to why all Danes wear black and never talk to strangers on the bus….

NB: The event is free of charge. Sign up to join.

    The Nordic Noir Night is hosted by a group of Master students of Comparative Literature at Aarhus University. Their interest in the genre of Nordic Noir was sparked by the rapidly growing field of Nordic Noir literary studies and by the cultural phenomenon of Nordic Noir which they wish to mediate, discuss and engage others in.
