Granite Noir: Aberdeen’s crime writing festival | Friday 24 - Sunday 26 February 2017
Gordon J Brown, a co-founder and director of Bloody Scotland, splits his time between the UK, the U.S.A. and Spain. The hero of his US-based series, Craig McIntyre, is ex-military turned bodyguard — and a man who attracts violence like a magnet. Quentin Bates, a co-founder of the Iceland Noir festival, spent more than a decade living in Iceland, where his Gunnhildur Gísladóttir series is set. As well as his journalism and novels, Bates also translates Scandi Noir for English-speaking readers.
Join them for a discussion delving into the different sensibilities and expectations of American versus Scandi crime fiction, and a look at how these physical and emotional terrains have shaped their own work.
