Crime Tourism and the Branding of Places

Sjöholm, Carina LU (2009) Dickens and Tourism Conference In [Host publication title missing]
Abstract
My paper will focus on the expanding tourism connected to popular crime novels in Sweden. The Swedish crime genre has been exploding during the last decades, and several Swedish crime writers have had an immense success abroad, e. g. Henning Mankell, Liza Marklund and Karin Alvtegen.

Some of these writers have chosen to connect their stories to a specific place or region; a fact, which has been exploited by the tourist business and a bransch of cultural tourism, which can be labeled crime tourism, has developed.
