Dubbed the ‘Queen of Crime’, Val McDermid has sold over 15 million books to date across the globe and is translated into over 30 languages. She is perhaps best-known for her Wire in the Blood series, featuring clinical psychologist Dr Tony Hill and DCI Carol Jordan, which was adapted for television starring Robson Green. She has written three other series: private detective Kate Brannigan, journalist Lindsay Gordon and, most recently, cold case detective Karen Pirie. She has also published several award-winning standalone novels, two books of non-fiction, two short story collections and a children’s picture book - My Granny is a Pirate.
