Having worked for some years as an actor and stand-up comedian, Mark Billingham is now one of the UK’s most acclaimed and popular crime writers. His series of novels featuring Detective Inspector Tom Thorne has twice won him the Crime Novel of the Year Award and was adapted for television.
His debut novel, Sleepyhead was chosen by the Sunday Times as one of the 100 books that had shaped the decade. His latest novel is Love Like Blood.
A major new drama based on In The Dark and Time Of Death was broadcast on the BBC in July 2017.
Billingham lives in London with his wife and two children.
He is currently hard at what is laughably called ‘work’, writing his next novel.
