Italian Noir with Gianrico Carofiglio

More Details

Building on a long tradition of inviting the world’s top crime writers to Hong Kong, HKILF is pleased to cooperate with the Italian Cultural Institute to present best-selling author Gianrico Carofiglio, who turned to fiction and non-fiction after many years as a prosecutor, an advisor of the anti-Mafia committee in the Italian parliament and a senator. Compared to Philip Marlowe and John Grisham, Carofiglio is best known for the Guido Guerrieri series, featuring a contemplative hero with a discriminating taste for good food, described by the FT as “hard-boiled and sun-dried in equal parts.”  Tonight he speaks with Giorgio Biancorosso (Professor, School of Humanities, HKU) about his latest novel, The Measure of Time, at once a tense courtroom drama and a tale of passion, and takes us behind the scenes in the fight against organised crime in Italy. This event is co-organised with the Italian Cultural Institute and Italia Mia Festival
