Anne Bruce

Translates from Norwegian into English

Having studied Norwegian and English at the University of Glasgow, I now live on an island off the west coast of Scotland and formerly worked in education before embarking on life as a literary translator. My specialism seems to have become crime fiction, and that suits me as I'm a great fan of Nordic Noir. Novels I've translated have twice won the Petrona Prize for Scandinavian Crime Fiction in the UK , twice been shortlisted for LAMBDA Literary Awards in the USA and twice been longlisted for the CWA International Dagger. Two of the novels I've translated have recently been filmed as 'Wisting', shown in the UK on BBC4, with another two currently at the planning stage.
