Join the Commonwealth Club for a conversation with the top American translators of Scandinavian crime novels, Steven T. Murray (aka Reg Keeland) and Tiina Nunnally.
The couple will talk about translation, their long career in the field, the differences in translating from various languages, the Stieg Larsson phenomenon (and controversy), and much more.
Steven T. Murray and Tiina Nunnally have been producing award-winning translations since 1984, including books by Henning Mankell, Peter Høeg, Camilla Läckberg, and Mari Jungstedt. Steven is the translator of the Stieg Larsson Millennium Series trilogy, and Tiina is known for translating another runaway bestseller (from the Danish), Smilla’s Sense of Snow.
