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

Once you’ve mastered the rules, all the fun is in breaking them! Meet two accomplished authors unafraid to tweak conventional formats to their own nefarious ends. In Ed’s Dead, McLean delivers fast-paced domestic psychological thriller with a satiric twist, proving once and for all that the female of the species is deadlier than the male.

In 2013, the Finnish press dubbed Tuomainen The King of Helsinki Noir. He was one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime genre formula, and his work has been praised not only for the heart-stopping twists in his tales, but also for his use of language. The Mine is a gripping, beautifully written tale of corruption and revenge, set in northern Finland. He’s a past winner of the Clue Award for Best Finnish Crime Novel of 2011.
