Part of the States of Danger and Deceit: European Political Thrillers in the 1970s Season
Adapted from the Martin Beck novel The Abominable Man by legendary left-leaning Swedish crime writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. Man on the Roof is a great example of a 1970s Nordic Noir film. Here Beck, played by Carl-Gustaf Lindstedt, and his team investigate a brutal murder in a hospital, encountering stories of police brutality as they progress, which in turn leads to a thrilling climax on the rooftops of Stockholm. A great opportunity to see the roots of the current wave of Scandinavian crime dramas.
The screening will be introduced by Dr Pasquale Iannone (The University of Edinburgh). This introduction will feature British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation.
