Granite Noir: Aberdeen’s crime writing festival | Friday 24 - Sunday 26 February 2017
One of the fathers of Nordic Noir, Gunnar Staalesen introduced the world to PI Varg Veum in 1977. Forty years later, his complex, engaging anti-hero is still going strong, despite a stint in rehab and a string harrowing cases that might have broken a lesser man. Jo Nesbo calls Staalesen “The Norwegian Chandler,” and Bergen honoured him by erecting a life-sized statue of Veum in the city centre.
We are delighted to welcome Staalesen to Granite Noir to introduce a rare UK screening of Cold Hearts. While investigating a case of missing sisters in Bergen’s prostitution network, Varg Veum faces an impossible choice: let the criminals go free, or expose his pregnant wife to mortal danger. Director: Trond Espen Seim. Writers: Geir Meum Olsen, Gunnar Staalesen.
After the film there will be a conversation and audience Q&A with Staalesen.
