We are delighted to host two public events on Monday, October 8th,  focused on the contributions women writers have made to Scandinavian crime fiction.

At 4:00 pm in Confer 127, Dr. Kerstin Bergman of Lund University will present a lecture, "The Women Strike Back: The Rise of Women Crime Writers in Sweden, 1997-2012." Bergman is an internationally-recognized expert on the genre.
