Question (168)      Crime (29)     


Stack of books


The genre of crime fiction is extremely popular and diverse in its styles. Some authors are truly original in their approach – their books gripping and interesting from start to finish.

So many crime authors have had their novels translated to film, and it's always interesting to see the visual version of the words you've read and interpreted.

Who is your favourite crime writer and why?

Reginald Hill, and I see you have one at the bottom of the stack there. I adore the Dalziel and Pascoe series. His writing is so elegant and the characters really come to life. His Joe Sixsmith books are also good fun.
Peter Robinson is a fantastic crime novelist. His character, Detective Inspector Alan Banks is a fascinating person. The crimes investigated are dealt with in an interesting manner - the books are full of bits and pieces, observations and side stories. It's just a shame I've read everything of Robinson's in my library, and can't seem to find any more titles in the shops! All of his books are excellent.
I know it's too early to tell yet, but I really enjoyed JK Rowling's crime novel under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith, 'The Cuckoo's Calling'. It had all the things a great crime fiction novel should, and left me really excited for her next one. It's coming out this year, and she's already working on the third, so after those ones I might be able to decide if I add her to my official 'favourites' list.
I don't know if I'd say they were my favourite, but I have real all of Donna Leon, Sparkle Hayter and Shalimi Flint...also working through the Sjowall & Wahloo. They're not brilliant but it's a genre of comfort, I guess...
