The other day, my husband the Swede (like My Mother the Car, but paler and more smug)told me that there was now a genre of literature in translation rather in the school of Steig Larsson - Scandinavian mystery, basically, involving pale people who drink way too much coffee but have excellent medical plans - that was being called Nordic detective.

So I said, "Noirdic?"

And he said "...."

"... yeah, that actually sounds a lot better, doesn't it.  Actually, you say it like that, and it sounds more like it could come from a Scandinavian language, too."

Noirdic(k), people!  Who's with me?
