Meet the Author: The Devil’s Wedding Ring by Vidar Sundstøl

Join Vidar Sundstøl, acclaimed Norwegian author, to discuss his new work The Devil’s Wedding Ring, a tale taut with suspense and steeped in Norwegian culture, published by the University of Minnesota Press. Local mystery author Allen Eskens will lead the Q&A with Vidar.

Sundstøl, who now lives in Telemark, won the prestigious Riverton Prize for the Best Norwegian Crime Novel for The Land of Dreams, the first volume of his acclaimed Minnesota trilogy (Only the Dead and The Ravens). In this latest book, people are dying on Midsummer’s eve in Eidsborg, Norwary, and detective Max Fjellanger is convinced there is a truth hidden among ancient superstitions, religious cults and sinister forces; and the past is never truly in the past.

The book was translated by Tiina Nunnally, an award-winning literary translator who was appointed Knight of the Royal Norwegian Order of Merit for her contributions to Norwegian literature in the United States.  

A book signing will follow the discussion.
