Lone Wolves & Dragon Tattoos

With Stieg Larsson s Millennium Trilogy topping the bestseller lists, Scandinavian crime fiction has never been hotter. Characters like Henning Mankell’s Detective Kurt Wallander and Norway’s famous private investigator Varg Veum are riding the wave of Stieg Larsson’s success. Lone Wolves & Dragon Tattoos traces the evolution of Nordic crime fiction, from the Martin Beck novels of the 1960s straight through to the worldwide phenomenon of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Viewers take an incredible journey – from a tour of Stockholm, Sweden visiting locations featured in the Millennium books and films to Albuquerque, New Mexico for a meeting with Stieg Larsson’s American translator. Go behind the scenes with some of Scandinavia’s biggest stars: actors Krister Henriksson (Kurt Wallander), Peter Haber (Martin Beck, Martin Vanger in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Trond Espen Seim (Varg Veum), authors Henning Mankell (Wallander), Gunnar Staalesen (Varg Veum) and Maj Sjowall (Martin Beck) – plus the producers who introduced both Lisbeth Salander and Kurt Wallander to film and TV audiences worldwide.
