Complicity at Open Book Festival

Open Book is my favourite festival to attend as an audience member…and now as a panellist, too! I chatted with two other writers on the topic of ‘complicity’.

I was so happy to be on the same panel as Oyinkan Braithwaite and to be introduced to Jørn Lier Horst, too. ‘My Sister the Serial Killer’ was already on my reading list before I knew I’d be on a panel with Oyinkan – her book is a tight, funny story with killer (sorry!) characters. According to Jørn, Norway’s welfare system is the reason crime is so low in the country – but enough still slips through the cracks to turn this ex-detective into a popular crime writer.

We were interviewed – in a wide-ranging chat on the topic of ‘complicity’ – by Africa Melane. The three books under discussion are pretty different from each other, but each one is bulging with secrets.
