Michael Dibdin (21 March 1947 –
30 March 2007) was a British crime writer. He was born in
Wolverhampton, the son of a physicist, and was brought up from the
age of seven in Northern Ireland where he attended Friends' School.
He graduated with a degree in English from Sussex University, and
then went to study for a master's degree at the University of Alberta
in Edmonton, Canada. After publishing his first novel, he lived for
four years in Italy, teaching at the university in Perugia. Later he
lived in Seatltle, Washington.
Dibdin is best known for his Aurelio Zen mysteries, set in Italy.
The first of these, Ratking, won the 'Gold Dagger' award in
1988. This series of detective novels provide a penetrating insight
into the less visible aspects of Italian society over the last twenty
years. The earlier books have a lightness of touch that gradually
becomes much darker. The character of Zen himself is anti-heroic,
which adds much to the books' irony and black humour. A final Zen
book, End Games, appeared posthumously in July 2007.
Dibdin was married three times, most recently to the novelist K.K.
Beck. He died in Seattle, Washington, following a short illness.
