Easter in Norway is all about crime

krimNext week, we will be entering Easter, and in Norway, the holiday is often spent reading crime novels. It all began i 1923, when a publiser posted an ad for a new crime novel disguised as a news article. The title read “The Bergen Railway robbed last night”, and generated a lot of attention to both the ad and the book. Book sales soared, and the next year other publisers started to mimic the idea for their own crime novels. Ever since, Easter has been a high season for crime novels and programs on TV. Perhaps the most prominent example is the crime stories printed on the milk cartons, as seen above.
