Michel Bussi is one of the most-read French authors of detective novels as well as the most-awarded, having sold almost 500,000 copies of his books. He has won fifteen literary awards, making him one of France’s most prestigious crime authors.
His first book, Lupin Code, was published in 2006. Omaha Crimes followed in 2007, winning a host of top literary prizes. He has also written the award-winning Death on the Seine, Black Waterlillies, Don’t Let Go of My Hand and After the Crash, described by Joan Smith of The Sunday Times as ‘a novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Stieg Larsson for the very first time. Bussi’s novel brings with it the same thrill of discovering a truly original voice’.
When not writing fiction, Bussi is a Professor of Geography at the University of Rouen and a political commentator.
