Minna Lindgren, a renowned Finnish journalist and expert of classical music at Jaipur Literature Festival 2018

Ms Minna Lindgren

Minna Lindgren is a freelance journalist and columnist known for her whimsical writing style and fearless approach to topics as strange as opera and death is coming to the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival 2018 under the Nordic partnership for the festival titled as ‘Nordic Lights at Jaipur Literature Festival’.

In addition to novels, she has authored nonfiction books on classical music. In 2009 Lindgren won the Bonnier Journalism Prize for her article entitled “Father’s Death” (“Isän kuolema”).

The fictional Death in Sunset Grove (Kuolema Ehtoolehdossa, Teos 2013) and Escape from Sunset Grove (Ehtoolehdon pakolaiset, Teos 2014) are the first two entries of a mystery trilogy that takes a sharp and satirical look at life inside a retirement home. Both books have been critical and commercial successes, and well-known British-born Finnish director Neil Hardwick is currently working on a film adaptation.

If you enjoy the whodunits of Miss Marple, the sharp quips of Downton Abbey or the playfulness of the bestselling The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out of the Window and Disappeared, you will fall in love with The Sunset Grove Trilogy.

The Nordic Embassies in India- Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Iceland have come together as ‘Series Partner’ for the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) 2018 titled as ‘Nordic Lights at Jaipur Literature Festival’

Detail programme of the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) 2018 is available at:
