In this photo taken Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012, American author James Thompson drinks coffee in Helsinki's 'Hilarious Pike' bar, a location central to the action in his Inspector Kari Vaari series of novels. Thompson's style is on the dark end of the “Nordic Noir” spectrum. The genre _ with its stark and often violent police procedurals _ has proved wildly successful for publishers and filmmakers alike.
