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!

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.

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. :)

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!

Aslak Nore and Asbjørn Slettemark are two Norwegian journalists and editors that also have their own crime blog. As they have good connections, their blog is filled with newsworthy articles, authors, actors and interesting stuff for the Nordic crime connoisseur. The blog is in Norwegian.

OP-5 - En blogg om tv, film og krimlitteratur

From their blurb: "…men mest av alt håper vi du liker nerding rundt krim og thriller og spionhistorier like mye som oss, og kommer med tilbakemeldinger i kommentarfeltene."
