Product Description


In the growing field of Scandinavian crime fiction studies, Steven Peacock has written something both innovative and insightful which functions as both literary criticism and sociopolitical observation, while communicating an enthusiasm for the genre. Swedish crime fiction is one of the most erudite yet accessible entries to the genre for the intelligent reader. No consideration of the subject - whether on the page or screen - can now be said to be truly balanced without taking into account Peacock's provocative study. Barry Forshaw, author of 'Death in a Cold Climate: A Guide to Scandinavian Crime Fiction' --.
