Locating Nordic Noir: From Beck to The Bridge

Kim Toft Hansen, Anne Marit Waade

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This book is a comprehensive study of Nordic Noir television drama from the 1990’s until today. The authors introduce the history of contemporary Nordic Noir from the perspective of place, production and location studies. The chapters include readings of well-known television crime dramas such as Beck, The Killing, Trapped and The Bridge as well as a range of other important Nordic Noir cases.

The book positions the development of Nordic Noir on the global market for popular television drama and places the international attention towards Nordic crime dramas within regional development of drama production in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland. Consequently, Nordic Noir is read as both a transnational financial and creative phenomenon and as a local possibility for community building.

The book is aimed at readers with an interest in crime drama as well as television scholars and students of television drama, and it offers a comprehensible, scholarly and methodologically original approach to the popularity of Nordic television crime dramas.
