Crime and Fantasy in Scandinavia provides significant insight into the changing nature of civil society under the Scandinavian welfare state through the lens of popular culture. Nestingen argues that the growth and visibility of pupular cuture have been at the heart of the development of heterogenous "publics" in Scandinavia, demonstrating that novels and films have mobilized readers and viewers, serving as a preeminent site for debates over individualism, collectivity, national homogeneity, gender, and transnational relations. Andrew Nestingen is an assistant professor of Scandinavian studies at the University of Washington.
