Agatha Christie remains one of the great influences on modern crime fiction, still shaping novels published in the 21st century and with her books regularly adapted for the screen. Our expert panellists – respectively a biographer and a translator of Christie – discuss how the innovations of this remarkable woman and her contemporaries shaped the Golden Age of Crime and beyond.

Lucy Worsley OBE is Chief Curator at the charity Historic Royal Palaces and presents history documentaries for the BBC. Her recent book, Agatha Christie: An Elusive Woman, is a biography about how Agatha Christie, despite the obstacles of class and gender, became one of the most prolific fiction writers of the 20th century.

Ragnar Jónasson is the award-winning author of the international bestselling Dark Iceland and Hidden Iceland series. Ragnar has translated 14 Agatha Christie novels into Icelandic, the first when he was 17 years old. He is the cofounder of the Iceland Noir Festival, which is Reykjavik’s first and only international crime fiction festival.
