Still I don't need marketing gimmicks to buy an extra copy of this magazine - I regard this publication so highly that I buy an issue to read until it is falling apart and another to keep mint in my collection. I did this with issue one and I've just picked up two issues of this second issue, A Nordic Noir themed issue.

The history of the genre is also taken care with an article on the first detective, Poe's Auguste Dupin. The story Murders in the Rue Morgue, published in 1841 is often called the first detective fiction.
I really do like this magazine - its excellently written and the first issue introduced me to the documentaries The Jinx and The Staircase which I have poured through this past month. And WOW! they made for compelling viewing.
The features are rounded out with book, film and TV reviews and while reading these I found myself making a wish list. At £7.99 the magazine is a little on the expensive side but at 130 pages it is well worth the expense.
