In The Borrowed, Chan Ho-kei’s third book and the first to be translated into English, we follow Hong Kong detective Kwan Chun-dok across several decades and through various pivotal historical moments, from the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre to the 1997 handover, up to the present day when Kwan is asked to solve his final case—the murder of a local billionaire. Chan talks to Albert Tam about his career and what makes Hong Kong a compelling setting for crime fiction.
