    'much more interesting novelisation by David Hewson'

    Het uiterlijk en de kalme, verzorgde spraak van David Hewson doen een uiterst conservatieve Engelsman vermoeden. Iemand die wikt en weegt en het liefst weinig beweegt onder het motto: “waarom veranderen als alles goed gaat?” Maar, schijn bedriegt. Liefst drie keer in zijn carrière als schrijver, besloot Hewson (Yorkshire, 1953) tot een ingrijpende verandering. De eerste switch was toen hij in 1986 zijn journalistieke werk voor kranten en tijdschriften inwisselde voor een reeks wisselvallige misdaadromans. Zijn tweede switch was toen hij in 2003 een serie startte rond de in Rome werkende Italiaanse inspecteur Nic Costa. Twaalf thrillers in het totaal waarmee Hewson internationaal doorbrak. Toch kreeg Hewson genoeg van zijn ooit zo diep beminde Italië. Toen hij in 2011 de kans kreeg om de Scandinavische tv-hit The Killing in boekvorm om te zetten greep hij de kans met beide handen aan. Zowel de pers als het publiek omarmden de unieke driedelige reeks. Daarna vond Hewson het opnieuw tijd voor verandering. Tijdens een van zijn bezoeken aan Amsterdam, besloot hij zijn volgende reeks in Amsterdam te situeren, met een gloednieuwe hoofdrolspeler. Het eerste deel in die reeks, Poppenhuis, ligt inmiddels in de winkel.
