The carnival has been called to a crime scene in Northern Ireland – Crime Scene NI, to be precise, but instead of yellow tape, it’s velvet rope as Gerard Brenan, in the midst of writing a script, takes a look at crime films for a change of pace. All of them have an Irish connection, and all of them are some combination of funny, suspenseful, violent, hilarious and bleak (sometimes in the same film). So leave the candyfloss at the fairground, pick up some popcorn and take a wee trip to the movies.

Next up: BV Lawson will host the carnival again at In Reference to Murder.
