Hello everyone! In this episode I am joined by the incredible scholar Maeva Chargros to talk about the fascinating Nordic Noir, both as a genre and some of its histories and properly diving into not one example, but two! As we talk about Henning Mankell's Before the Frost and Stieg Larsson's first book of the Millenium series!

CW for violence, mutilation, sexual assault, rape, animal cruelty

Do take care with the warnings, but it is still a very good and interesting episode that we hope you enjoy all the same on violence, abuse, and more on these Nordic societies, via these powerful and painful books.
