North Shore Sightseeing Tour

are proud to present:
April 24 - 26, 2015
A North Shore Sightseeing Tour inspired by
Vidar Sundstøl’s Minnesota Trilogy's Land of Dreams and Only the Dead and The Ravens
This is a unique opportunity to be part of a tour with the author, Vidar Sundstøl.
Join us for a book tour for Minnesota Trilogy crime fiction series (including "Drømmenes Land (Land of Dreams)," "De Døde (Only the dead)," and "Ravnene"), for a unique, three-day spring tour to the North Shore, with the author himself.
In the final installment of his award-winning Minnesota Trilogy, Norwegian crime writer Vidar Sundstøl's affinity for the northern world of Lake Superior is on full display as Lance's search takes him from the wilds of the Boundary Waters to outposts steeped in voyageur history and Ojibwa culture, from the streets of the Twin Cities to the gritty port of Duluth, to the sleepy tourist towns that dot the North Shore, and as the mysteries of love and nature, history and culture merge in a powerful conclusion.
We visit many of the places and venues that inspired the author Vidar Sundstøl, while enjoying good company, great food, and lively discussions in the beautiful scenery of the North Shore.
You have maybe read the first two books in the trilogy and still do not know whom the perpetrator is? Read “The Ravens” and find out. “The Ravens” will be available in English at the end of March.
Vidar Sundstøl is the winner of the Riverton Prize in 2008 for best Norwegian crime novel of the year, “Drømmenes land.” He is promoting the newly translated English version of the last book in his Minnesota Trilogy, “The Ravens.” He will join us from Norway for most of the tour as we visit the places and venues that inspired his writing.
Scandinavian noir meets Minnesota noir. . . Sundstøl weaves a rich sense of Northland history and heritage into his crime novel. His deep knowledge of—and love for—the Lake Superior region comes through on every page.
