Nordic Noir recommends ‘Listen Again’ to Mark Lawson’s Foreign Bodies on Radio 4 Friday 12th July at 13.45

This short piece offers an interesting insight into the writers’ ideas on how women are portrayed in the very male dominated detective profession.

Of particular note was the contrast between the French writer Alexandra Clert’s wish to portray an ‘ordinary’ woman and that of Søren Sveistrup’s NN solitary heroine Lund.
