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

Sharp social criticism and dark home truths are a hallmark of modern crime fiction, and Kati Hiekkapelto is so adept at weaving controversial social issues through their thrilling mysteries that you never spot the join. She is joined by her publisher, Karen Sullivan, who founded Orenda books in in 2014, and quickly made a name for the imprint with an impressive stable of Scandi crime writers. She’ll discuss why Scandi authors are so popular with British readers, the importance of translation, and what she looks for as an editor. Chaired by Sarah Ward.
