Anna Roxelana


I’m currently doing a postgrad magazine journalism diploma at Cardiff University.  As part of my course I run a blog, Roxelana, on Scandinavian crime fiction.  I write reviews, author and translator profiles and features.

I have been blogging since my final year at Manchester University.  While doing a B.A in Spanish and history, I wrote about Spanish lifestyle in the city.  A couple of friends contributed and we managed to get a local and student readership.

Now I’m hoping to get to know an online community of people who enjoy Scandinavian crime fiction.  I would love to hear your comments about my reviews or blog!
