NORDIC BOOK CLUB ONLINE: THIRTY DAYS OF DARKNESS

March 12—6:00 pm7:00 pm

Read and discuss literature with our Nordic Book Club Online! On March 12, we’ll be exploring Thirty Days Of Darkness by Jenny Lund Madsen, an atmospheric, darkly funny and twisty debut thriller now out in translation by Megan E. Turney about a Danish author who must write a crime novel in 30 days — while solving a murder along the way.

Copenhagen author Hannah is the darling of the literary community and her novels have achieved massive critical acclaim — but no one ever actually reads them. When the acerbic and snobbish writer is publicly challenged to write a crime novel in the span of the month, her editor sends her to Húsafjöður for inspiration, a quiet, tight-knit village in Iceland filled with colorful local characters.

But two days after her arrival, the body of a fisherman’s young son is pulled from the water … and what begins as a search for plot material quickly turns into a messy and dangerous investigation that threatens to put everything at risk, including Hannah. Can she solve the murder and bring peace to the victim’s loved ones, while turning out a bestseller at the same time?
