Nordic Cool Weekends
Nordic Cool: Crime Mystery Weekend (cancelled for 2018)
Building off of a growing popularity of Nordic crime novels around the world, Concordia Language Villages invites you to take part in our first-ever Nordic Cool: Crime Mystery Weekend. For one weekend in March, Skogfjorden, the Norwegian Language Village, will transform into a mock crime scene, and you and other participants will be the lead detectives in solving the mystery. From the evening of Friday, March 9, to midday Sunday, March 11, participants will be knee-deep in thrilling plot twists, sudden reveals, and dramatic conclusions. Be a part of this annual tradition, learn a bit of the Nordic languages, and cherish this unique side of Nordic culture.
As the plot thickens, you will dine on the delicious Nordic-inspired meals prepared by the Concordia Language Villages culinary masters. Enjoy your stay at Skogfjorden by sitting around the fireplace in Gimle with a sumptuous mug of warm gløgg while discussing all of the details of the case and reaching your own conclusion as to who committed the crime!
Our village store has several titles that you can buy for your next crime novel read and we will share some other options for future reading as well. Everyone will leave the weekend with a sharper mind, inspiration for holding your own Nordic Crime Weekends at home, and a great story to tell with memories to cherish!
Nordic Cool: Holiday Weekend
