I'm happy to announce that [livejournal.com profile] nordic_noir is now an affiliate community of [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang! Thanks goes to the mod there, [livejournal.com profile] spikedluv. :)

Small Fandoms Bang is a big bang community for small fandoms. A big bang is a long fanfic (≈ more than 10.000 words). Writing a long story can be something of a challenge and even more if you are writing for a small fandom, and so the [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang community is there to provide encouragement, help and cheer-leading to make you reach your writing goals. And as the [livejournal.com profile] nordic_noir fandoms are generally small and have much too few big bangs (in my opinion :D), the community could be very useful for Nordic Noir fans. So go for it: that longfic your plotbunnies have been nibbling at!

[personal profile] acts_of_tekla
Title: Draw the Watcher's Eye
Author(s): [livejournal.com profile] acts_of_tekla
Fandom(s): Wallander
Type: Gen
Rating: G
Word Count: 137
Characters/Pairings: Wallander, Hel/Hela
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Summary: Drawing the attention of the goddess of death rarely leads to happiness.
Author’s Notes: Inspired by the not-entirely-unserious fan theory that Wallander being happy would somehow trigger Ragnarok, and by my own theory that the universe loves to see him suffer, which is why he survives the crazy situations he constantly finds himself in.

She watches him from the shadows... )

The Nordic Bookblog has just posted a review of the brand new English translation of Helene Tursten's Night Rounds. You can read it at the blog: http://bookblog.scandinavianbooks.com/night-rounds-by-helene-tursten/ or you can subscribe to the Nordic Bookblog right here at LJ with this feed: [livejournal.com profile] scandibookblog

Excerpt: "the Swedish detective Irene Huss is a former Ju-Jitsu champion and a mother of twin teenage girls. She is also wife of a successful chef. She works in the Violent Crimes Unit in Goteborg, Sweden – the second largest city in Sweden.
One night the power goes out at a local hospital, The Lowander Institute, a private hospital in Goteborg, Sweden. The back-up generator fails to kick in, and a patient in ICU dies. The nurse who was looking after the patient disappears. There is only one witness, and she claims to have seen Nurse Tekla doing her night rounds. Which could have been an excellent observation, except that nurse Tekla died – committed suicide – 60 years ago.

This was written for the casestory Big Bang challenge.

Title:
We Are NOT Going to Cardiff
Author(s): gloria_scott
Artist(s): sc_fossil (aka kat-byrd)
Fandom(s): Sherlock BBC | Wallander BBC
Type: Slash
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~16,700
Characters/Pairings: Lestrade/Wallander; Sherlock
Warnings/Spoilers: Explicit sex, rope bondage, BDSM scenes, murder
Summary: Wallander is visiting Lestrade in London for the first time since their unlikely friendship/relationship began. Lestrade's intention to have a quiet weekend of pub-going and football watching are dashed when Sherlock arrives and demands their help with a case he's working in Cardiff. Against Lestrade's better judgement, the pair find themselves on their way to Wales to investigate the curious case of a local politician accused of murdering his mistress. Will their fledgling relationship weather the strain of working together and the unpredictable tempest that is Sherlock Holmes?
Author’s Notes: (1) A special shout-out and thanks to the lovely and talented sc_fossil (aka kat-byrd), who created the art for this fic. Also, thanks a million to catchoo152 for the beta and my Brit-picking tag team, thesmallhobbit and aeron_lanart!
(2) This story is part of my The Man Who Never Smiled ‘verse, which is a bit of a mish-mash between BBC and book Wallander. It occurs between that story and Orange Chicken. Series-wise it takes place between S1-S2 of Sherlock, and between S2-S3 of Wallander.

Henning Mankell's seventh book about Kurt Wallander: "On Step Behind" has a plot and a character (and possible pair of star-crossed lovers) of special interest to slashing fans:

Karl Svedberg, Wallander's good friend and colleague is implicated in a crime early on in the book, and much of the following plot focuses on secrets he has kept from Wallander. I bet you can guess where this is going? *drumroll* One Step Behind has canon angsty slash! *hugs the author*

More details, huge spoilers and a picture behind the cut )

BUT why am I writing this? Because there is no fic! I haven't found a single one, neither on FF.net: Wallander nor on AO3: Wallander, nor anywhere else. Do you know better? Or, could I inspire you to make a go of it? Please post plotbunnies too: the right prompt does help a lot in greasing the cogs. ;)

A comprehensive fan site (inspector-wallander.org), on "One Step Behind" (with all movie versions, translations and so on).
A clip on bbc.co.uk: "One Step Behind". (Available to viewers in the UK.)

It's sad to know that Kalde Hjerter (Cold Hearts), with premiere today: March 30., will be the last Veum-movie, at least for a while. Here is a trailer (in Norwegian):

Kalde Hjerter is the last in a series of 12 Varg-Veum-movies and to my knowledge, no more is planned at the moment. ;_; This last one is directed by Trond Espen Seim, the actor who plays Varg Veum.

My first fanvid - and I’m actually reasonably pleased with how it came out. Wallander Series 2, set to Florence+The Machine’s Shake It Out.

There's a multifandom Nordic-language learner-friendly kink meme going on at http://in-particulate.livejournal.com/4936.html - Nordic language kink meme

From [livejournal.com profile] juicypuffin's descriptions: "A kink meme for all fandoms, in Nordic languages. (...)
Every request is tagged and searchable here: http://www.delicious.com/nordiclangmeme"

"You can answer in a Nordic language and not put it in English, or you can do both a Nordic language and English, but you can't put it only in English."

"A kink meme is not always as dirty as it sounds. It’s just a place to write/draw stories that people request, about existing book characters, tv series, whatever. There are actually tons of these out there on the internet, but not many in Nordic languages."

So, for those of you that speak a Nordic language: Use the chance to prompt for Nordic Noir-fanfiction! (There sure isn't too much of it around already. :)

Welcome to my Wallander pimp! I'm not going to lie - as much as I absolutely adore this show, it is one of the most depressing series I've ever seen. So the caveat to my pimp is this - yes, do watch Wallander, but only when you're in a healthy frame of mind because seriously, this show will get you down. Still with me? Good. On with the pimpage!



On with the pimpage! )

New members keep dribbling in, and it's great to see more Nordic Noir-fans. A warm welcome to you all! And if you'd like to present yourself, your favorite Nordic Noir-novels, characters, movies or series, news or gossip, hop to it! It doesn't have the be "the most important post evar", it can be  a simple picture of your favourite, a question, a drabble - I'm sure you get the gist.

I have asked a few other communities if they want to become our affiliates. Here's the list so far (Yay for them!):
[info]beforeyouwrite - A fanfic community for rare pairings and fandoms.
[livejournal.com profile] bookfanfiction - A fanfiction archive for fic based on books.
[livejournal.com profile] moviefanfiction - A fanfiction archive for fandoms based on movies.
[info]scandafandom - A multifannish community for fans speaking Scandinavian languages.
[info]smallfandomfest - A multi-fandom fest community for small fandoms.

They are all well worth visiting. And [livejournal.com profile] smallfandomfest has a Pimp your Small Fandom!!!-round going right now (up until April 30.), so you can use this opportunity to get more fans interested in your special-but-small fandoms and your beloved OTP's. (Wallander and Varg Veum is already taken.) And if you do one for a Nordic-Noir-series, remember to repost it here, for us to squee over too!

Here's a little resource-post for Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy. There's actually a lot of fanworks floating around on this fandom, but there's few central points to go look for it. Here's some of what I found:

A short review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo over at [livejournal.com profile] bookish, by [livejournal.com profile] make_meabird.
A comprehensive review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo over at ScandinavianBooks.com, including background and facts about the author. An interesting read, for sure.

A review of Swedish movie The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Män som hatar kvinnor) (2009) on [livejournal.com profile] eddaxs_movies.
A poll on the Swedish movie The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on [livejournal.com profile] amovieaday, with very good overall rating, so far. :)

Info about the move productions and actors are to be found on ONTD:The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo/Stieg Larsson News and on the LiveJournal community [livejournal.com profile] rooneymara - Rooney Mara Daily. Rooney Mara Daily also has screencaps and graphics from the Fincher films.

A handful of fanfic are to be found on Archive Of Our Own: Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Lots more, including crossovers, have residence at Fanfiction.net: Millennium Trilogy.

Add your own Millennium-resources and fanworks in the comments, or make a new post of it! \o/ (A picspam would be nice,,, or perhaps some icons?)

Hi, new [info]nordic_noir members! Nice to see you all! I'm the mod and I hope you all will have a great time here and that you will feel welcome to post your own stuff, fanworks, news, squeeposts, questions and discussions or whatever Nordic Noir-related stuff you like. :)

It is also nice to see a bunch of Nordic Noir fans gathered in one place, finally! I have seen many single posts referring to heroes and stories from the Nordic Noir-genre here on LJ, but as long as we just post to our own journals and to the different multi-fandom communities, it is hard to get up the momentum in this particular niche. Hopefully this community will be a step in the right direction and a source of much fannish joy and sharing. <3 *hugs you all, politely but exited*

If you like, you can present yourself in the comment fields here. Tell us what fandoms you're a part of, how you stumbled over your Nordic Noir favourite, pairings you like, and how about including a picture of your favourite character?
