This was an event I coordinated on 4th November for Norvik Press/the Nordic Noir Book Club. The most enjoyable part of the preparation was reading the novel (in translation) and doing a trial run of the video chat with the translator in advance. Thankfully it all went off without a hitch and the evening was a success!

In partnership with Norvik Press, the Nordic Noir book club held a reception at University College London on 4th November 2013 to celebrate the publication of Dan Turèll’s Murder in the Dark. The book’s translator Mark Mussari took part in an interactive Q&A during the event, live via video link from the USA. You can watch the full video below (27 minutes).
The video Q&A was hosted by UCL’s new PhD student in Danish-English Translation Studies, Ellen Kythor, and the launch was made possible with support from the university’s School of European Languages, Culture and Society.
