Denise Mina - Tartan Noir, Scottish Crime.

“Mina is acutely sensitive to characters’ mental states [blurring] the line between heroism and villainy’’ - The Guardian (UK).

Crime writer Denise Mina is inextricably linked with the mean streets of Glasgow where she was born, and where each of her nine novels are set. They include the award-winning Garnethill trilogy, and a subsequent series centred on the 1980s journalist Paddy Meehan and her negotiations with the less than enlightened Glasgow of that era: working-class, macho and sectarian. Denise’s first Paddy Meehan novel, The Field of Blood, has recently become a BBC television drama.

Mina’s writing has been described as ‘Tartan Noir’, she also writes plays, short stories, comics and graphic novels. Mina’s most recent novel is the gripping The End of the Wasp Season. Join her in conversation with Jane Stafford.

With support from the Lion Foundation.
