Crime fiction sales hit the top of the chart

Crime novels and psychological thrillers are outselling other types of fiction for the first time, after television dramas boosted interest in the genre.

In 2017, 18.7 million crime and thriller books were sold, up 19 per cent since 2015. General and literary fiction titles, which have led the market for the past 20 years, sold 18.1 million copies.

Women are driving the boom, accounting for 53 per cent of crime and thriller sales. The market last year was worth £117 million, according to figures unveiled at the London Book Fair by Nielsen BookScan.
