Arne Dahl, a multi-award-winning author, critic and editor. His books have sold over three million copies, and been translated into 32 languages. Last appearing at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in 2012, we are absolutely delighted to announce his return in 2017 as part of an ‘In Conversation’ event. Who will Dahl be in conversation with you ask? You’ll just have to wait and see!

Regarded as one of the finest literary crime writers in Scandinavia, celebrated author Jan Arnald is the man behind the bestselling Intercrime series which has been made into a BBC TV series, written under the pen name of Arne Dahl. The highly praised series of ten novels has won its creator such distinguished awards as the premier crime writing awards in Germany, Denmark and Sweden. In 2007 The Swedish Academy of Crime Writers awarded Arne Dahl a special prize for his “vitalization and development of the crime genre through his Intercrime series”

Joesph Finder first planned to become a spy. Or maybe a professor of Russian history. (Keeping options open!) Instead he became a bestselling thriller writer, and winner of the Strand Critics Award for Best Novel for BURIED SECRETS (2011), winner of the International Thriller Writers Award for Best Novel for KILLER INSTINCT (2006) and winner of the Barry and Gumshoe Awards for Best Thriller for COMPANY MAN (2005).

After taking a high school seminar on the literature and history of Russia, Joe was hooked. After completing his master’s degree at the Harvard Russian Research Center, he was later recruited to the Central Intelligence Agency…
Eventually he decided he preferred writing fiction.

GUILTY MINDS is Joe’s latest novel and the third book in the Nick Heller series. The “private spy” returns in an exhilarating and timely thriller exploring how even the most powerful among us can be brought down by a carefully crafted lie and how the secrets we keep can never truly stay buried
