Tartan Noir: The Definite Guide to Scottish Crime Fiction


A fascinating, scholarly but highly accessible study of Scotland’s world-renowned Tartan Noir literary movement, examining a number of high profile best-selling crime writers, from William McIlvaney, Stuart McBride, Caro Rasmay and Ian Rankin to Val McDermid, Quintin Jardine, Louise Welsh and many others.

Based on the author’s own research and in-depth interviews with many of the writers covered, Wanner delves deeply into what characterises and defines the Scottish police procedural and psycho killer novel at the heart of Tartan Noir, whilst also looking at the traditions and influences from wider Scottish literature. Doing for Tartan Noir what Barry Forshaw’s ground-breaking Nordic Noir did for Scandi crime fiction, Len Wanner’s book will be a fascinating companion for crime lovers and students of literature alike.
