Granite Noir: Aberdeen’s crime writing festival | Friday 24 - Sunday 26 February 2017
Former sports journalist Thomas Enger plunges us into Oslo’s dark underbelly and the fast-moving world of 24-hour news with his popular Henning Juul novels, which are published in 26 countries. His most recent in English, Cursed, involves a missing woman, a dead man, and a wealthy family guarding terrible secrets. Juul is also coming to terms with his son’s death. Enger has been called “one of the most unusual and intense writers in the field.”
Denmark’s Thomas Rydahl is a writer and translator. He’ll be talking about his debut, The Hermit, which won the Danish Debutant Award — the first time it has ever gone to a thriller. He’s also won the Glass Key Award for the best Nordic crime novel, and the Harald Mogensen Prize for the best Danish crime novel. Set on a deserted beach on the Spanish island of Fuerteventura, it features a distinctive — and highly unlikely — detective.
