Event description

Description

Anja De Jager's novel A Cold Death in Amsterdam is a smart and engaging police procedural novel about a Dutch detective struggling to come to terms with her past. It is the first Lotte Meerman novel, followed by A Cold Case in Amsterdam Central. Anja will also be talking about her current publication, Death on the Canal, released in November 2017.

Jake Kerridge says ‘A Cold Death in Amsterdam succeeds as a portrait of both a city and, in its heroine, a delightfully dysfunctional personality’

Leigh Russell writes the internationally bestselling crime series featuring police detectives Geraldine Steel and Ian Peterson, which have sold over a million copies. She also writes the mystery series featuring investigative reporter Lucy Hall. Her latest novel is Class Murder, the tenth DI Geraldine Steel investigation.

Lee Child says Leigh's novels are 'unmissable' while Jeffery Deaver says she is a 'brilliant talent in the thriller field'

Heidi Amsinck, a writer and journalist born in Copenhagen, spent many years covering Britain for the Danish press, including a spell as London Correspondent for the broadsheet daily Jyllands-Posten. She has written numerous short stories for radio, including the three-story sets Danish Noir, Copenhagen Confidential and Copenhagen Curios. She was previously shortlisted for the VS Pritchett Memorial Prize. Last Train to Helsingor is her first published collection of stories.

The Daily Mail says ‘A nice slice of creepy Scandi-noir’

The event will be moderated by Dr Anne Grydehøj, Department of Scandinavian Studies, UCL.

The talk will cover Anja’s, Heidi’s & Leigh’s books, and what inspires them to write such gripping stories followed by a ten minute Q&A session, with a mystery prize for the best question.
