Karin Fossum’s main protagonist, Inspector Konrad Sejer, has made his ways to TV screens in Norway, and now even to New York, as Scandinavia House screens the popular series this summer.
Fossum is an internationally acclaimed writer, and recently won the Los Angeles Times Book Award for her novel The Indian Bride, which features Konrad Sejer. Four of Fossum's Inspector Sejer novels have been made into film series and were originally shown on Norwegian TV, where they were among the highest rated shows in Norway. Bjørn Sundquist has won both a Norwegian Gullruten award and an Amanda for his role as Konrad Sejer.
Scandinavia House will show the series based on The Indian Bride and Black Seconds.
Fossum's crime novels featuring Inspector Sejer have been translated into sixteen languages, and she has received raving reviews in The New York Times, The Washington Post, among others.
