BBC Documentary "Nordic Noir"

For UK viewers BBC Four will be showing a documentary on the popularity of Scandinavian mystery and detective fiction.  The program will feature the works of Henning Mankell (Wallander) and Stieg Larsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

I would truly love to see this documentary since I'm a great fan of Scandinavian mysteries and detective fiction and television shows based on the work of these great writers. I love the complexity of the stories, the flawed yet brilliant protagonists, and the psychological motives behind the crimes. The stories also don't shy away from political and social issues that often transcend national boundaries.

So if you're lucky to be in the UK or be able to see BBC Four tonight, click below for further information:
