Granite Noir: Aberdeen’s crime writing festival | Friday 24 - Sunday 26 February 2017

Discover why choosing the right location for a novel is as important as identifying the killer. Doug Johnstone’s new novel Crash Land is set in Orkney, while Sarah Ward’s A Deadly Thaw takes place in the Peak District.

Both evoke a vivid sense of place as integral to the story as its characters and plot. Johnstone says: “Orkney is tremendously atmospheric, and all the old archaeological sites. . . give a real feeling that the past is absolutely intertwined with the present in everyday life. There’s an innate sense of claustrophobia, that exists on islands that’s hopefully tailor-made for tense and suspenseful writing.” The Financial Times said A Deadly Thaw "bristles with the same persuasive psychological detail and atmosphere that distinguishes Nordic noir.”
