Nordic noir is a film and television genre, and examples include The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge, The Millennium Trilogy, and Midnight Sun. The genre has generated international excitement. This chapter examines the case of Nordic noir and tourism. The narratives in Nordic noir invoke the often cold, grey, and wet weather in Nordic countries in order to create an atmosphere of melancholia and dejection that corresponds often to the criminal stories. Still Nordic noir tourism has become popular, and have helped these countries attract tourists, illustrating that the relationship between screen landscapes and tourism is more complex than selling the beautiful and positive.
