Students at the prestigious Harvard University will learn more about Stieg Larsson and trends in Scandinavian crime literature.
Harvard students learn about Salander
Students at the prestigious Harvard University will now get a dose of Swedish thrillers and learn about characters like Lisbeth Salander. Lecturer in Literary Studies at Lund University Sara Kärrholm, has been engaged at Harvard to lead a series of seminars about Scandinavian thrillers next spring. “I’ve suggested two sessions on Stieg Larsson,” she says. “One in which I will talk about him as just a phenomenon, and one where I will talk about Lisbeth Salander and feminism within the genre.” Kärrholm’s book “Kriminallitteratur: utveckling, genrer och perspektiv” (Crime fiction: Development, genres, and perspectives) was published recently. It was co-written with Kerstin Bergman. The series of seminars given at Harvard was sponsored by a scholarship in the memory of the Swedish diplomat Nils-Gustav Hildeman.
