Scandiphiles and Nordic Noir lovers: prepare yourselves for Nordicana, a two-day celebration of gripping crime dramas from northern Europe. 'The Bridge’s blunt but brilliant detective Saga Norén (Sofia Helin) and 'The Killing's heroine Sarah Lund (Sofie Gråbøl) will be making appearances, with more international authors and other familiar faces from the world of film and television to be announced. A selection of screenings will include UK premieres of 'Jordskott', a Swedish contemporary thriller soon to be shown on ITV Encore, and  Channel 4's new French crime series 'Witnesses'. House of Sverre, Grasilver and Totally Swedish will be providing the Scandi food, drink, design and culture stands.

A promising event but not well organised. Hopefully there will be another next year & mistakes will be learnt from. I love Scaninavia, Norway in particular - their food, culture , architecture & history - & feel more could have been made of this. The cuisine is definitely something to expand on & let's have a better venue! I'll be looking out for this next year & will attend but I do expect big changes

This looked really interesting, with a bit more warning I would certainly have attended several events. I hope Nordicana will be repeated!

Whilst the content of this event was promising (I don't know, I couldn't get to see anything I wanted to owing to queues and poor capacity), the event organisation was dire. Of course, an old brewery venue was cold. However, there were loads of failures with power (the ladies loos were in the dark - I think that's a health & safety issue). As I couldn't get into ANY of the three parallel session I wanted, there was nowhere to just sit in the venue. The lights were all out here as well, and coffee took 15 minutes to be made apparently. An organiser suggested we go down the pub if we wanted to wait for something. So we left and didn't return. EPIC SHAMBLES!!!!!! Full refund please arrow films.

What an amazing line up!! Plus watching the final Bridge episodes with those two!! I'd have to be gagged to stop myself quizzing them non stop!!
