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. ;)

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! )

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?

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.
