A RENOWNED UK criminolog­ist and best- selling author will be heading to Dunfermlin­e later this year when true crime, violence, and murder will be out under the spotlight.

Professor David Wilson, who is also a broadcaste­r and former prison governor, will stop off at the Alhambra Theatre on October 6 as part of a 14- date Scottish tour titled ‘ Murder at Home’.

Fresh from the success of his ‘ My Life with Murderers’ UK Tour earlier this year, Wilson will take to the stage once again with an all- new show touring throughout his home country.

The home is where the heart is, but it is also the most common place for murder. ‘ Murder at Home’, based on Wilson’s best- selling book of the same name, will uncover the dangers that can exist where we least expect them.

He will talk audiences through each part of the house, explaining how the use of each room has changed over time, the potential weapons they contain, and how these factors combined can lead to murder.

Wilson will delve into the infamous and lesser- known true crime cases and discuss how everyday violence can touch us all.

Announcing the tour, he said: “I am delighted to be touring in Scotland again, and this time visiting towns and cities that I was unable to speak in on the last tour.

“I am looking forward to once again engaging with Scottish audiences, about true crime, violence, and murder. Despite what I am going to talk about, it’s always nice to come home.”

Professor David Wilson is the best- selling author of the gripping books Murder at Home, My Life with Murderers & A Plot to Kill.

Emeritus Professor of Criminolog­y at Birmingham City University and the founding Director of the university’s Centre for Criminal Justice and Research, he is also an award- winning TV presenter, most recently fronting Channel 4’s In the Footsteps of Killers with Emilia Fox and David Wilson’s Crime Files for BBC Scotland.
