The Noirwich 2017 weekend begins with a double-bill of Arne Dahl and Martina Cole at the University of East Anglia, combined with the launch of an exciting new literature exhibition featuring exclusive material from Val McDermid, Stuart MacBride and Robert Edric.

It promises to be an evening of contrasts, ranging from the intersection of crime fiction and geopolitical discourse, to different techniques for plotting crime novels, and a conversation with an author at the top of every best-seller list.


The Times/Sunday Times Crime Club presents:
