In partnership with Book Week Scotland and Bloody Scotland, Harvill Secker is pleased to announce a tour of Scotland with crime authors Arne Dahl, Eva Dolan and Stuart Neville from 23rd-25th November 2015. The Urban Noir Showcase will stop at Glasgow, Inverness, Oban, East Lothian and Dumbarton. Arne Dahl will also be speaking at a solo event at Orkney Library & Archive on 16th November.

Hailing from Stockholm, Belfast and Peterborough, crime novelists Arne Dahl, Stuart Neville and Eva Dolan will discuss the contemporary anxieties they explore in their works of urban crime fiction. Their novels tackle a range of urgent, hot-button issues from immigration, terrorism and the fate of refugees to the effects of violence on those left behind. These three celebrated writers will share their inspirations, reveal their writing secrets and answer questions from the audience in a lively discussion.
