New Affiliate: Small Fandoms Bang!

I'm happy to announce that nordic_noir is now an affiliate community of smallfandombang! Thanks goes to the mod there, spikedluv. :)

Small Fandoms Bang is a big bang community for small fandoms. A big bang is a long fanfic (≈ more than 10.000 words). Writing a long story can be something of a challenge and even more if you are writing for a small fandom, and so the smallfandombang community is there to provide encouragement, help and cheer-leading to make you reach your writing goals. And as the nordic_noir fandoms are generally small and have much too few big bangs (in my opinion :D), the community could be very useful for Nordic Noir fans. So go for it: that longfic your plotbunnies have been nibbling at!

Fic: Draw the Watcher's Eye (Wallander)
St Thecla
acts_of_tekla
Title: Draw the Watcher's Eye
Author(s): acts_of_tekla
Fandom(s): Wallander
Type: Gen
Rating: G
Word Count: 137
Characters/Pairings: Wallander, Hel/Hela
Warnings/Spoilers: None
Summary: Drawing the attention of the goddess of death rarely leads to happiness.
Author’s Notes: Inspired by the not-entirely-unserious fan theory that Wallander being happy would somehow trigger Ragnarok, and by my own theory that the universe loves to see him suffer, which is why he survives the crazy situations he constantly finds himself in.

Night Rounds, by Helene Tursten

The Nordic Bookblog has just posted a review of the brand new English translation of Helene Tursten's Night Rounds. You can read it at the blog: http://bookblog.scandinavianbooks.com/night-rounds-by-helene-tursten/ or you can subscribe to the Nordic Bookblog right here at LJ with this feed: scandibookblog

Excerpt: "the Swedish detective Irene Huss is a former Ju-Jitsu champion and a mother of twin teenage girls. She is also wife of a successful chef. She works in the Violent Crimes Unit in Goteborg, Sweden – the second largest city in Sweden.
One night the power goes out at a local hospital, The Lowander Institute, a private hospital in Goteborg, Sweden. The back-up generator fails to kick in, and a patient in ICU dies. The nurse who was looking after the patient disappears. There is only one witness, and she claims to have seen Nurse Tekla doing her night rounds. Which could have been an excellent observation, except that nurse Tekla died – committed suicide – 60 years ago.

Fic: We Are NOT Going to Cardiff (Lestrade/Wallander; NC-17)
They fight crime
gloria_scott
This was written for the casestory Big Bang challenge.

Title:
We Are NOT Going to Cardiff
Author(s): gloria_scott
Artist(s): sc_fossil (aka kat-byrd)
Fandom(s): Sherlock BBC | Wallander BBC
Type: Slash
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~16,700
Characters/Pairings: Lestrade/Wallander; Sherlock
Warnings/Spoilers: Explicit sex, rope bondage, BDSM scenes, murder
Summary: Wallander is visiting Lestrade in London for the first time since their unlikely friendship/relationship began. Lestrade's intention to have a quiet weekend of pub-going and football watching are dashed when Sherlock arrives and demands their help with a case he's working in Cardiff. Against Lestrade's better judgement, the pair find themselves on their way to Wales to investigate the curious case of a local politician accused of murdering his mistress. Will their fledgling relationship weather the strain of working together and the unpredictable tempest that is Sherlock Holmes?
Author’s Notes: (1) A special shout-out and thanks to the lovely and talented sc_fossil (aka kat-byrd), who created the art for this fic. Also, thanks a million to catchoo152 for the beta and my Brit-picking tag team, thesmallhobbit and aeron_lanart!
(2) This story is part of my The Man Who Never Smiled ‘verse, which is a bit of a mish-mash between BBC and book Wallander. It occurs between that story and Orange Chicken. Series-wise it takes place between S1-S2 of Sherlock, and between S2-S3 of Wallander.

Karl Svedberg (Wallander) - a character of special interest to slashers
Time to Read
eve_n_furter
Henning Mankell's seventh book about Kurt Wallander: "On Step Behind" has a plot and a character (and possible pair of star-crossed lovers) of special interest to slashing fans:

Karl Svedberg, Wallander's good friend and colleague is implicated in a crime early on in the book, and much of the following plot focuses on secrets he has kept from Wallander. I bet you can guess where this is going? *drumroll* One Step Behind has canon angsty slash! *hugs the author*

More details, huge spoilers and a picture behind the cutCollapse )

BUT why am I writing this? Because there is no fic! I haven't found a single one, neither on FF.net: Wallander nor on AO3: Wallander, nor anywhere else. Do you know better? Or, could I inspire you to make a go of it? Please post plotbunnies too: the right prompt does help a lot in greasing the cogs. ;)

A comprehensive fan site (inspector-wallander.org), on "One Step Behind" (with all movie versions, translations and so on).
A clip on bbc.co.uk: "One Step Behind". (Available to viewers in the UK.)
