November 16, 2020

Nordic Noir, also known as Scandinavian Noir, is a genre of crime fiction usually written from a police point of view and set in Scandinavia or Nordic countries.  This type of fiction has proven to be very popular so we have added many new titles to our library.  Take a look on our website under “search our catalogue” for the most recent 100 books added, or under “subject” for Nordic Noir.  Please reserve your titles and make an appointment for pick-up.
