SBS Radio has launched Noir Hear This, an original eight-part Nordic thriller podcast series that delves deep into the Scandinavian crime genre, Nordic Noir.
The series leads the listener through the Nordic Noir landscape, uncovering the dark forces beneath the picture perfect Norwegian forests and finding out what lies behind Finland’s unhappy first place as the Nordic country with the most murders.
Hosted by Johan Gabrielsson, each episode visits a different Scandinavian location and features conversations with novelists, screen writers, critics and thinkers, who discuss the psyche and craft behind this successful crime fiction genre.
SBS (Acting) Director of Audio and Content Language, Pip Spilsbury, said: “At SBS Radio we’re passionate about celebrating our diversity while appreciating the things that we share as Australians.
“An enjoyment of Swedish crime thrillers is just one of those things that brings many of us together.
“By downloading the SBS Radio app, our audiences can explore the intriguing world of Nordic Noir and discover plenty more conversations that will inspire, inform and entertain in their language.”
A new episode of Noir Hear This will be available every Wednesday from 28 March until 16 May across SBS Radio app; Android, iTunes and Pocketcasts.
Other podcast collections on the SBS Radio app include Settlement Guide; a ‘how to’ guide on setting up life in Australia for new migrants and emerging communities and Viva, providing a positive approach to the interest, concerns, passion and pursuit suitable for the more mature audiences. Providing access to live, catch up and podcast audio content, users can now playlist their favourite podcasts on the SBS Radio app.
