The Scandinavia Show 2011 will be held at Earls Court on 8 and 9 October.
Covering all things Scandinavian, of particular interest to crime fiction fans is this event on the Sunday:
As Sofie Gråbøl and Søren Malling pay an extraordinary visit to The Scandinavia Show, fans are offered a unique chance to meet the actors behind the popular characters.Also, Arrow Films will be there, selling copies of The Killing and Wallander (reduced to £30 for the event).
The two actors, who in the cult series play lead characters Sarah Lund and Jan Meyer, will take part in an informal and humorous question and answer session hosted by the BBC’s Lars Tharp, who is a great fan of the series. “For me the attraction is mainly the fact that the series goes on in real time, the incredible suspense which that builds up, and the understated acting,” he says. Danish Tharp who, as the host of the BBC’s popular Antiques Roadshow is a familiar face to many, will not just question the actors but will try to involve the audience as well. If you have questions about the series, the actors or their characters, this is most likely to be your one and only chance to get the answers from the stars themselves.
Tickets are £16 and can be used on either day and can be purchased at half-price from the website however Euro Crime has 4 tickets to give-away (which can be collected at the box-office on the day).
