Caroline Palmstierna, a producer who has worked on several Nordic Noir productions, tells Radio Sweden what it is that viewers outside of Scandinavia find so fascinating about our TV dramas.

Caroline Palmstierna tells Radio Sweden the interest took off in the UK with the BBC's remake of Wallander. This got viewers interested in the original version, which eventually led to the BBC acquiring more Scandinavian crime dramas such as The Killing, Borgen, and The Bridge.  

Not only do they care about the cop and the character, they care about: Look at how they live there!

Palmstierna jokingly calls herself 'The Queen of Nordic Noir.' Two years ago, she made a documentary on the genre, and she is convinced that the homes and offices of the TV characters are part of the fascination for viewers abroad.
