Developed by students from the University of Edinburgh and celebrating all things Nordic, the night begins with Scottish crime writer Lin Anderson, who will introduce a sun-drenched evening drinks reception at The Point’s Sky Bar, taking full advantage of the summer solstice. At 22.25 the audience can take their seats for Erik Skjoldbjærg’s moody crime noir Insomnia. This event offers a taste of the Scandinavian landscape amidst panoramic views of Edinburgh’s own monumental skyline.
