Sophie Hannah on Expresso

Our very own Zoe Brown recently got to have a sit down interview with the Queen of Crime herself, the internationally best-selling author Sophie Hannah.

Sophie is known as the Queen of Crime, for her many best-selling novels, her novel the Carrier, was awarded the Crime Thriller of the Year Award at the Specsavers National Book Awards, in 2013. The British poet and novelist has had two of her crime novels be adapted into television series, the first was her 2008 novel Point of Rescue which was turned into a two-part drama called Case Sensitive which came out in 2011. The Other Half Lives was the second novel to be adapted for the screen and was released in July 2012, as a continuation of Case Sensitive.

Sophie is also renowned for a poetry, her fifth collection of poems, Pessimism for Beginners, was on a shortlist of the 2007 TS Eliot Award. Her poetry is even studied at A-level and degree level in high schools, across the United Kingdom.

Sophie’s crime novels are published in 32 different languages and over 27 countries. Hannah was asked by Agatha Christie’s family in 2014 to continue Christie’s legacy of her Hercule Poirot novels, with her first novel being Monogram Murders, which became a best-seller in over 15 countries. Her second Hercule Poirot novel released in 2016, became a Sunday Times top ten best-seller.
