AA Dhand’s DCI Harry Virdee remains the only British Asian detective in an established crime fiction series. In Dhand’s fourth novel, One Way Out, the detective tries to prevent an impending terrorist attack, set against a backdrop of rising nationalism in his home-town of Bradford and racial and religious tensions both at work and on the streets.
DS Mick Paterson has been a detective in Northumbria Police for 30 years, where he heads up the Complex Case Unit.
Professor Mike Rowe, Northumbria University, has an international reputation for research and publications in the field of policing, paying particular attention to policing culture and reforms, race and racism, and the policing of domestic violence.
Together they will consider fictional and real-life crime, to look at the role of a detective in an investigation and the culture within which they operate.
Chaired by Professor Katy Shaw, Northumbria University
