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. ;)

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.

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?)

Varg Veum is the central character in a series of crime novels, written by Gunnar Staalesen, about a private detective who lives in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. The books have been translated into several languages, including English, German, Swedish, and Danish.

The eleventh Varg Veum movie De døde har det godt, had its Norwegian premiere January 20. 2012. It got mixed reception, but here is at least a nice picture from it. More pictures from the Varg Veum movie productions.
