Some brief overview of book

"Even those unmoved by its subject will thrill to Scandinavian Noir, a beautifully crafted inquiry into fiction, reality, crime and place . . .

Perhaps when it comes to fiction and reality, what we need most are critics like Lesser, who can dissect the former with the tools of the latter." -Kate Tuttle, The New York Times Book Review An in-depth and personal exploration of Scandinavian crime fiction as a way into Scandinavian culture at large For nearly four decades, Wendy Lesser's primary source of information about three Scandinavian countriesSweden, Norway, and Denmarkwas mystery and crime novels, and the murders committed and solved in their pages. Having never visited the region, Lesser constructed a fictional Scandinavia of her own making, something between a map, a portrait, and a cultural history of a place that both exists and does not exist. Lessers Scandinavia is disproportionately populated with police officers, but also with the stuff of everyday life, the likes of which are relayed in great detail in the novels she read a fully realized world complete with its own traditions, customs, and, of course, people.

Over the course of many years, Lessers fictional Scandinavia grew more and more solidly visible to her, yet she never had a strong desire to visit the real countries that corresponded to the made-up ones. Until, she writes, "between one day and the next, that no longer seemed sufficient." It was time to travel to Scandinavia. With vivid storytelling and an astonishing command of the literature, Wendy Lessers Scandinavian Noir In Pursuit of a Mystery illuminates the vast, peculiar world of Scandinavian noirfirst as it appears on the page, then as it grows in her mind, and finally, in the summer of 2018, as it exists in reality.

Guided by sharp criticism, evocative travel writing, and a whimsical need to discover "the difference between existence and imagination, reality and dream," Scandinavian Noir is a thrilling and inventive literary adventure from a masterful writer and critic.
