Yrsa Sigurdardottir from Iceland/ The Nordic Crime Literature: A Look into the Nordic Society
Presentation of the work of the Icelandic Yrsa Sigurdardottir. Yrsa Sigurdardóttir, civil engineer in the profession, award-winning children’s book author and mother of two, is considered one of the new “”big names”” of thriller writing.
Her original script, combining modern day reality with the research of the mysterious ancient history of her country, gives her a uniqueness in the plot of her novels. Her books are enormously successful internationally, and many of them are being transferred to the cinema. A unique opportunity for Greek readers to get to know the Icelandic stylist who handles fear as an obedient puppet
