A huge let down.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nordic Noir (Pocket Essentials) (Paperback)
Considering that around 80% of this book concentrates upon Swedish crime fiction, it was a huge let down. The blurb on the front cover states that the book covers scandinavian tv and film, well it feels like it has been tacked on to the end of the book. The author certainly knows his stuff about crime writing but its quite obvious that the film and tv aspect are not his thing and are poorly researched. So if you enjoy all things Swedish then this book could well be your thing. If you are a fan of anything Danish, Norwegian, Finnish or Icelandic......give it a miss as they hardly feature.
