The Nordic Noir genre of crime and suspense has captivated the world. People everywhere have been gripped by the unfolding narratives and compelled by amazing characters lifted from the page and onto the screen. The writing of the Saga Norén, Sarah Lund and Dicte Svendsen characters, with their deep backstories and personal idiosyncrasies, are seen as a breakthrough in a male dominated genre.
New Nordic Noir is an intensive writing workshop looking for the next noir talents and story lines. Lead by Nikolaj Scherfig, lead writer on The Bridge, emerging writers from around the world will learn from professionals with first hand-experience in creating suspense and drama. A lab combining experts in Art, Research and Business will also take serial fiction in a new direction with a pilot-project based in the amazing and charismatic West Coast of Jutland. A great place for a murder!
