  • Kicking Off Iceland Noir 2014

    Following the easygoing success of last year’s inaugural Iceland Noir crime lit festival, this year’s event is already off to a good start. The three day festival will involve two jam-packed days of author panels, talks, and readings at the Nordic House, as well as a Sunday ‘Snæfellsnes Mystery Tour’ lead by Yrsa Sigurðardóttir. But

  • Floating in a bubble

  • Icelander In The National Portrait Gallery

    A portrait of Icelandic deputy MP and human rights activist, Freyja Haraldsdóttir, by Gabrielle Motola, has been selected for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize 2014. Freyja’s picture, part of Motola’s “Women of Iceland” photographic series, along with the other 59 portraits will be on display at London’s National Portrait Gallery until mid-February 2015. “The idea for the
