Joining the line-up were Eddie Izzard, Mark Billingham, Rory Bremner, Lee Child, Ann Cleeves, MC Beaton, Val McDermid, Lisa Gardner, Sara Paretsky and Arnaldur Indridason.

One of the new names to appear at the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival was the Icelandic writer Arnaldur Indridason. His Reykjavik Murder Series features Detective Erlendur who is just as interested in solving modern day crimes as he is in trying to find answers to crimes from deep in the past.
