Online Crime Noir Event
Hosted by The Grove Bookshop
Thursday December 14 at 7PM
Sign up by emailing email@example.com
The Grove Bookshop is delighted to welcome international bestselling author and hugely entertaining crime writer Johana Gustawsson for an evening of thrilling conversation about her new crime novel L'île de Yule or Yule Island. Set in Sweden, the book pulls you straight into the darkness of Nordic winter and a place where cosy hygge soon turns into dark horror.
We also welcome David Warriner, Yorkshire lad and award-winning translator for a discussion about his work with Johana translating her Swedish inspired book from French to English; and resident Grove Bookshop artist Sussi Louise Smith whose poem Johana chose for her main character Emma.

The queen of French Noir is BACK in Scandinavia
And she is freezing
Storholmen is a car-free island in the Stockholm Archipelago in Sweden. A manor house was built there at the turn of the twentieth century, and rumour has it, it's haunted. It's a five-minute boat ride away from my home, and I'm about to take you there.
Are you ready? Wrap up warm. It's cold outside.
