Mysterious Cities: The Perfect Crime Novel
From the smoke-filled pubs of Inspector Rebus’s Edinburgh via the unnamed but precisely drawn Prefecture D of Six Four to the lurid neon lights of Inspector Kwan Chun-dok’s Mongkok, place is the element that makes or breaks many a crime novel. In this panel, crime writers Ian Rankin, Hideo Yokoyama and Chan Ho-kei join moderator Kate Whitehead to discuss how the cities of Edinburgh, Tokyo and Hong Kong have inspired their fiction; about writing for international readers as opposed to their countrymen and -women; and where to draw the line between geographical truth and cliché.
