Jo Nesbo, John Wick, Billie Holiday

Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo, best known for his series about troubled Oslo detective Harry Hole, discusses his latest novel Blood on Snow with Samira Ahmed. Another fast paced crime thriller, Blood on Snow is told from the perspective of a hit man hired to kill the woman he loves. Action thriller John Wick stars Keanu Reeves as an accomplished hit man who comes out of retirement to take revenge for the murder of his dog. Also starring Alfie Allen as the spoilt son of a Russian mafia king pin, John Wick is set in a New York underworld and filled with stylised violence and action sequences. Antonia Quirke reviews. 100 years ago today, Billie Holiday, as she later became known, was born. To celebrate the singer's centenary, critic Jacqueline Springer, and biographer, John Szwed, examine what it is about her music that still captivates us in 2015. And the winner of the BBC Music Magazine's Recording of the Year is announced. Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Sarah Johnson.…read more
