Local noir and the regionalization of Danish TV drama production

Research output: ResearchPaper without publisher/journal

Abstract

In the paper I employ the concept 'local noir' as a location oriented concept for analyses of ‘localisation’ of crime fiction. Even 'port noir' (crime fiction in port cities) would be an interesting way to shift attention away from a very diffuse idea of 'the Nordic' onto an attention towards the actual process of placement in TV drama production. While Danish TV drama is often mentioned as internationally succesful, the opposite process of local TV drama is rarely mentioned, although the two processes are centripetal and cetrifugal parts of the same phenomenon.
