Critic, journalist and writer Barry Forshaw, whose work includes the first biography of Steigg Larsson will also be talking popular Scandavian crime fiction and what authors to watch out for this year.

For bookworms who are interested in the popular Scandinavian crime genre and British fiction this event is a must. It promises to be a great evening at a bargain price so I encourage residents to book early to avoid disappointment.”
