Often referred to as the 'undisputed champion' of Russian crime fiction, Boris Akunin has plumbed the depths of tsarist Russian history as inspiration for his sinister characters and labyrinthine plots. This evening he sheds light on the truth behind the fiction, the differences between British and Russian crime and the true origins of his pen name. Boris will be in conversation with bestselling author Tibor Fischer.
