Foreign Bodies: Crime Fiction Around The World

As well as being gripping page-turners, crime novels reveal so much about the country or culture in which they are set. From exposing corrupt political systems, delving into a place’s dark underbelly or interrogating the psychology of different nations, it is a fascinating genre through which to explore the world. Join our panel of international crime experts including bestselling Icelandic crime writer and founder of Iceland Noir Festival Ragnar Jonasson, Indian mystery writer hailed as the ‘Indian Agatha Christie’ Manjiri Prabhu (appearing digitally) and Joan Smith, crime critic for The Sunday Times in conversation with our literary explorer in residence Ann Morgan, for rich insights into how the genre differs around the globe and to hear their reading recommendations.
