Exhibition: Swedish Crime Scenes

Join us on a journey through the darker, but fictional sides of Sweden – as seen and described by the numerous Swedish crime authors delighting fans of murder and mystery worldwide.

The exhibition Swedish Crime Scenes will take us from Ystad in the south to Kiruna in the north. A few years ago there were three Swedish crime fiction authors on the top ten list of most sold novels in Europe. Considering Sweden’s population of nine million, compared with over 800 million for Europe as a whole, it is something of a phenomenon. Sweden is not seen as a crime-ridden country but through authors like Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, Håkan Nesser, and many others, it has become known for fictional crimes.
