British crime writer Denise Mina - known internationally for her work - has in recent years moved into comics and graphic novels and is currently engaged on writing the graphic novel adaptations of Stieg Larsson's international bestselling "Millennium" trilogy - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. She talks about the art of adaptation and working with graphic artists with illustrations from this work
Crime writer Denise Mina is inextricably linked with the mean streets of Glasgow where she was born, and where each of her nine novels are set. They include the award-winning Garnethill trilogy, and a subsequent series centred on the 1980s journalist Paddy Meehan and her negotiations with the less than enlightened Glasgow of that era: working-class, macho and sectarian. Denise's first Paddy Meehan novel, The Field of Blood, has recently become a BBC television drama.
Her comics include Hellblazer: Empathy is the Enemy, Hellblazer: The Red Right Hand and A Sickness in the Family about spree killing and property prices. Her new project is writing the graphic novel adaptations of Stieg Larsson's "Millennium" trilogy: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.
