Saturday Crime NewsPosted: May 3, 2014
Brief post with links for Saturday, in the “just in case you missed it” department:
- Jo Nesbo at The Guardian explains how his father fighting for the Nazi’s was the inspiration behind his third novel, “The Redbreast”
- Jo Nesbo on Revenge, My Lovely for The New York Times, a topic or subject he uses a lot in his Harry Hole books
Found an Arne Dahl interview posted on Twitter:
And last but not least is another Guardian article about a UK constable who says that crime fiction needs a little more reality:
Detectives should be depicted as “cheery, well-balanced, well-adjusted, equally successful investigators” in crime novels rather than “hard-drinking, heavy-smoking, cynical people”, the chief constable of Avon and Somerset Police has said.
Sorry but that sounds boring and I wouldn’t read it.
