Murder in the Library: An A-Z of Crime FictionA free display at the British Library, Murder in the Library: An A-Z of Crime Fiction is a fascinating exhibition which indulges our addiction to detective stories - crime fiction currently accounts for over a third of all fiction published in English. Interesting items on display include the original manuscript of the Sherlock Holmes story 'The Retired Colourman' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, part of the journey through crime and detective fiction from its origins in the early 19th century through to our current obsession with Nordic Noir.

 

About British Library

With over 150 million items, a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi, and a host of historically momentous works - including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels - a guided tour around the British Library is the best way to take it all in.
