Hard Boiled. Jo Nesbø and Megan Abbott on Crime-Writing

The iconic American crime novel as defined by Chandler and Hammett continues to be re-invented. Megan Abbott writes L. A. noir, old school – sex, blondes, booze and vice. Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole is a rift on the tough cop – damaged, determined and battling the bottle. These two crime stars speak to Paul French about writing within and against the tradition. Presented by Adelaide Writers’ Week, March 2012
