On March 21, Kristian Bang Foss will visit the Felleshus building of the Nordic Embassies in order to give a lecture based on his newest book titled ‘Der Tod fährt Audi’. The publication has been hailed as one of the most original works of recent times whilst it has also received a literature prize from the European Union. The line of events continues on Wednesday, March 26, with a reading from Kim Leine.
