The Crime Writing Masterclass, created by the Jan Michalski Foundation together with Le Temps, proposes three sessions a year introducing the best international thriller and crime writers.

How do they investigate? How do they write? What are their sources?

In the course of an afternoon, masters of crime writing look behind their creative process and introduce a film that inspired them.

Pierre Lemaitre is the guest of this Crime Writing Masterclass.
