Granite Noir has teamed up with Crested Butte's crime fiction festival Murder in the Mountains for a special event connecting Aberdeen with Colorado. Authors on sides of the Atlantic join forces to debate the influence and importance of place in crime fiction and crime fiction festivals.

In Aberdeen we focus on 'the North' and joining the panel is bestselling Norwegian author Jorn Lier Horst. A former senior investigating officer and recent winner of the Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel, Jorn will discuss The Katharina Code the latest in his detective William Wisting Series. And half American, half Norwegian Alex Dahl whose latest book The Boy at the Door asks what happens when your perfect life is threatened by the arrival of a friendless eight year old boy?

Authors in the US provide insights into the influence of classic North American landscapes in their work. A powerhouse of mystery writing, Kevin J Anderson is the author of 56 international best sellers that cross both traditional and indie publishing. While in Barbara Nickless latest novel, Dead Stop a woman is murdered on the train tracks in a Denver beset by a series of moonsoon like thunderstorms that threaten to flood the city.

Chaired by Lesley Anne Rose in Aberdeen and Brooke McMillian in Crested Butte.
