Reviews

'This original volume not only offers highly engaging analysis of Swedish author Stieg Larsson's hugely popular Millennium trilogy, but also of the broader field of Nordic noir that has recently risen to popular and critical prominence in the English-speaking world. It takes a truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of Scandinavian crime fiction, and is a valuable resource for scholars and more casual readers alike.'

- Chris Homewood, Lecturer in World Cinemas, University of Leeds, UK
