Urban Noir Showcase

In partnership with Book Week Scotland and Bloody Scotland, Harvill Secker has announced a tour of Scotland with crime authors Arne Dahl, Eva Dolan and Stuart Neville from 23rd-25th November 2015. The Urban Noir Showcase will stop at Glasgow, Inverness, Oban, East Lothian and Dumbarton.

Hailing from Stockholm, Belfast and Peterborough, the three novelists will discuss the contemporary anxieties they explore in their works of urban crime fiction. Their novels tackle a range of urgent, hot-button issues from immigration, terrorism and the fate of refugees to the effects of violence on those left behind. These three celebrated writers will share their inspirations, reveal their writing secrets and answer questions from the audience in a lively discussion.
