About

What role does the locale and backdrop of the story play? Should the crime fiction writer attempt to hold a mirror up to society? Examine familiar cities and fictional small towns as we move across Batu Pahat, London and Europe with these writers’ works. Dive into the nitty-gritty of setting up a page-turner to tell a story beyond sensational crimes and shocking twists.

This programme is made possible with the support of the Embassy of Sweden and  includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
