Discover how two authors juggle work as novelists and screenwriters, and how those disciplines compare and contrast. MJ Arlidge writes the bestselling DI Helen Grace thrillers, the newest of which is Love Me Not. He’s an equally successful screenwriter, whose first job was writing for Monarch of the Glen. He’s currently writing for Silent Witness, and a US-set supernatural thriller, The Last Rites. Sweden’s Stefan Ahnhem will talk about his Stockholm-set Fabian Risk thrillers, The Ninth Grave and Eighteen Below. His 2014 debut, Victim Without a Face, won Crimetime’s Novel of the Year in Sweden. As a screenwriter, he’s best-known for his work on adaptations of Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallender series. A TV series of his Risk novels is in development.
