Swedish Crime Scenes

(Jan 13, 2015 - Apr 02, 2016)


Although few murders are actually committed in Sweden, the Swedish crime novel has become a modern classic and has gained a worldwide reputation in just a short space of time. From Gotland in the east to Fjällbacka in the west, from Ystad in the south up to Kiruna in the north, the country is seen with a new perspective: via murder investigations where the focus is not only on the crime but also on the Swedish welfare model and human psychology.

Nordic Heritage Museum presents: Swedish Crime Scenes, a banner exhibition curated and designed by the Swedish Institute in Paris, which “presents 21 Swedish crime fiction authors from a perspective that both gives the audience a good idea of Swedish crime fiction but also effectively presents Swedish geography and landscape.”
