The Body in the Garden: Crime & Garden Writers' Festival

The Body in the Garden: South Australian Crime & Garden Writers' Festival. 

Swedish crime writer Hakan Nesser will be a guest at a new festival called The Body in the Garden to be held in the Botanic Garden, Adelaide, Australia, during the weekend of October 25 to 27.

Festival organizers Rose Wight and Penelope Curtin have assembled a line-up of 22+ writers from Australia and overseas.

"Adelaide, the ideal festival city because of its convenience and compact size, also boasts one of the oldest botanic gardens in Australia - an idyllic and apt location for this festival," they said on Monday.

They were delighted when Nesser, winner of the European Crime Fiction Star Award and three-time winner of the Best Swedish Crime Novel Award, accepted their festival invitation.

One of the UK's leading authorities in garden history and design, Toby Musgrave, will also be a guest, as will crime writer Anne Cleeves.
