About this product
- DescriptionScandinavian popular vels and films have seen an efflorescence in the last thirty years. In Crime and Fantasy in Scandinavia , Andrew Nestingen argues that the growth and visibility of popular culture have been at the heart of the development of heterogeneous publics in Scandinavia, in opposition to the homogenising influence of the post-World War II welfare state. The book provides significant insight into the changing nature of civil society under the Scandinavian welfare state through the lens of popular culture. Nestingen develops his argument through the examination of genres where the central theme is individual transgression of societal rms. Among the internationally kwn artists discussed are Henning Mankell, Aki Kaurismaki, Lukas Moodysson, and Lars von Trier.
