Arts news. John Wilson meets Agnetha Fältskog; TV's Hannibal reviewed; writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie chooses a painting by Ben Enwonwu for the Cultural Exchange.

With John Wilson.

Agnetha Fältskog talks about her years with Abba, the painful break-up from her marriage to Björn,
her solo career and her new album - the first of original material for 25 years - which is called simply A.

Hannibal Lecter, the psychiatrist and cannibalistic killer created by Thomas Harris, is about to reappear - this time in a TV series starring Mads Mikkelsen, set before Red Dragon and The Silence Of The Lambs. Hannibal is employed by the FBI to help an unusually gifted criminal profiler, Will Graham, who's haunted by his ability to see into the minds of serial killers. Crime writer Mark Billingham reviews.

In the latest episode of Cultural Exchange, in which creative minds select a favourite art-work, writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie nominates Tutu, a painting by Igbo Nigerian painter and sculptor Ben Enwonwu.

Producer Rebecca Nicholson.
