About Bloody Scotland: Ian Rankin interviewed by First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

Bloody Scotland is delighted to reveal that the ‘special guest’ interviewing Ian Rankin on Saturday 21 September will be First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

A self-confessed crime fiction fan, the First Minister was last seen at the Harrogate Crime Festival singing backing vocals with the Fun Lovin’ Crime Writers hot from their appearance at Glastonbury.

We can’t promise any singing but can promise a fascinating conversation between two of the most iconic figures in Scotland.

Ian Rankin’s the man who led the Tartan Noir charge to the top of international bestseller charts. He’s the creator of the iconic Detective Inspector John Rebus who sets the standard for crime fiction cops everywhere and is as recognisable a part of Edinburgh as Princes Street and the Castle.

Ian has – by the last count – sold some 30 million books that have been translated into thirty-six languages and have been bestsellers around the world. In a House of Lies is, incredibly, the 22nd John Rebus book yet somehow the series still manages to go from strength to strength. As a contemporary social commentator – and thrilling storyteller – Ian Rankin has few rivals.



While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bloody Scotland: Ian Rankin interviewed by First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon. are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
