Join the Crime Reading Group

UPPSALA

Reader of mystery novels?
Lover of crimes?

Join the Crime Reading Group in Uppsala! We meet once a month to discuss a mystery novel, either a more hard-boiled, noir kind of book (Tough Crime), or a more classic crime (British Crime). Leading the discussions is author James van Loon.

On Monday 24 April we’re dissecting Sunset City by Melissa Ginsburg and on Monday 22 May we discuss what’s making A High Mortality of Doves by Kate Ellis fly. (The novel that is, the doves aren’t flying anywhere...)

Sign up at the bookshop.
