Nordic Crime Fiction

with Åsa Avdic and Sara Blædel



This event is cohosted by the UW Scandinavian studies department, the Swedish Club, and University Book Store.

It will be held at the University Book Store (4326 University Way NE).

Join us for this reading and book signing, where Swedish journalist Åsa Avdic and #1 international bestselling Danish author Sara Blædel will share their new novels. This event will be moderated by Monica Enqvist, the public diplomacy, press, and communications counselor for the Swedish Embassy. This event is free and open to the public.

Avdic's The Dying Game takes us to the year 2037. The Soviet Union never fell, and much of Europe has been consolidated under the totalitarian Union of Friendship. On the tiny island of Isola, seven people have been selected to compete in a 48-hour test for a top-secret intelligence position. 

Blædel's The Undertaker's Daughter introduces Ilka Nichols Jensen, a widowed school portrait photographer leading a modest and regimented life in Copenhagen until unexpected news rocks her quiet existence: her father—who left the family more than three decades ago—has died. And he's left her something in his will: his funeral home. In Racine, Wisconsin.

Åsa Avdic is a journalist who for years was a presenter for Swedish Public Service Radio and Television and is currently a host of Sweden's biggest morning current events program. She lives with her family in Stockholm, Sweden. The Dying Game is her first novel.

Sara Blædel is the author of the #1 international bestselling series featuring Detective Louise Rick. Her books are published in thirty-seven countries. In 2014 Sara was voted Denmark's most popular novelist for the fourth time. She is also a recipient of the Golden Laurel, Denmark's most prestigious literary award. She lives in New York City.
