Enter our fantastically festive competition for a Scandi sack full of gruesome goodies!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – the most wonderful time to be a devoted fan of Nordic Noir & Beyond! The Scandinavian countries may boast the natural beauty that is commonly associated with the romanticised view of Christmas – magical family journeys to Lapland in the northernmost region of Finland, immersing yourself in the Norwegian Christmas Town of Egersund and browsing the traditional holiday markets in Denmark. However, the wintry Nordic façade that sparks the inner glow of Christmas has also provided us with a darker appetite…
To celebrate the hygge season in true Nordic Noir style we are giving one lucky person the chance to take home the ultimate collection of DVDs and books that every ‘Nordophile’ should have!
The Killing Trilogy
Follow the iconic heroine of Nordic Noir in the television series that redefined the Scandinavian crime drama. Paving the way for the abundance of award-winning shows, Sarah Lund (Sofie Gråbøl) headed the infamous investigation to discover who killed Nanna Birk Larsen. Take home the complete seasons one, two and three of The Killing and watch the brilliant detective get drawn into the dark, political underworld of Denmark, leading up to a dramatic series finale!
The Bridge Trilogy
Saga has returned and is as engaging as ever. Despite her social awkwardness we cannot help but love her. She made an immediate impact as soon as we became acquainted with her on the Øresund Bridge to examine the mysterious body found at the border between Sweden and Denmark. The unconventional relationship between Saga and Martin overshadowed the inventive, socially themed murderous plots they solved, up until the melancholic finale of season two. The Saga trilogy is unmissable.
Taking a leap away from the criminal arena, Borgen focused on the political landscape of Denmark without a severed corpse in sight. The inner-workings of the Danish Parliament in Christiansborg or ‘Borgen’ (meaning ‘castle’), fascinated us with a dramatised, fast-paced insight of the first female Prime Minister Birgitte Nyborg and her rise to power. From leader of the Moderate Party, to Prime Minister, to corporate speaker and back to reclaiming her desired title by creating the New Democrats Party from scratch. Witness the journey from start to finish.
The Borgen Experience: Creating TV Drama the Danish Way
Camilla Hammerich – producer of DR Fiktion at the Danish Broadcasting Corporation – spent six years working on the critically acclaimed series Borgen (2010-2013), which prompted her to dedicate a further two years to produce this revealing look behind-the-scenes of the show. With 445 days of shooting 2000 scenes, which became the 30 hours of fiction we have experienced on our screens, Hammerich unveils everything from the show’s beginnings up until the awards ceremonies.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web (Millennium Series)
She’s back. David Lagercrantz fills the gargantuan shoes to take the helm of the fourth chapter in the Millennium Series. Due to best-selling author Stieg Larsson’s death in 2004, the ten-part franchise seemed to come to a premature end. However, written in the style to honour the late genius, readers have been reunited with Lisbeth Salander after her traumatic encounter with her violent past. A new imagining and new story brings a new cyber-crime for us to relish!
