Irvine Welsh: Crime and Punishment image

In 1998, Irvine Welsh published his first detective novel, Filth, featuring Detective Inspector Ray Lennox. Now, Lennox is back in Edinburgh.
In The Long Knives, a corrupt, racist Scottish MP with plenty of enemies is found dead behind a warehouse in Leith. Lennox has to set aside his personal feelings and search for the perpetrators. But will the real victims ever get justice?
Today Welsh discusses his novel for the first time with Michael Pedersen.
