‘Quais du polar': crime is their business

If the perfect crime exists, it is probably in the mind of one of the masters of crime fiction gathered for this exceptional festival.

Every year, the heroes and antiheroes of the best crime fiction and thrillers descend upon Lyon. For an entire weekend, detective fans and amateur sleuths are regaled with film screenings, conferences, a giant themed bookstore in the Palais du Commerce, and multiple events throughout the city. Among the authors signing and reading this year are Jo Nesbo, JJ Connolly, Caryl Ferey, Richard Price, Jessica Cornwell, Barbara Abel, Jean Van Hamme, and David Lagercrantz. A family treasure hunt in the beautiful streets is one of the many highlights.
