Dark Travellers – The Rise of Scottish Crime Writing

In 2021, we were involved in the production of a very special short film, that charted the rise of crime fiction in Scotland. Presented by acclaimed writer and Bloody Scotland chairperson James Crawford, Dark Travellers was commissioned by Publishing Scotland to shed new light on the success of the UK’s bestselling genre. The film, which premiered at Bloody Scotland in 2021, includes never before seen interviews with some of the biggest names in crime including Val McDermid, Denise Mina, Chris Brookmyre, Marisa Haetzman, Graeme Macrae Burnet, Abir Mukherjee and Ian Rankin.

We hope you enjoy!
