Martin Walker was born in Scotland, author of the ‘Bruno‘ detective series set in the Périgord region of France, where Walker has a holiday home. It is based on an unconventional village policeman, Benoit ‘Bruno’ Courreges, a gourmet cook and former soldier who was wounded on a peacekeeping mission in the Balkans, who never carries his official gun and has “long since lost the key to his handcuffs.” His latest book “The Resistance Man” came out in 2013. Little by little, Martin Walker has become an ambassador to the Dordogne with his thousand readers.
He was educated at Harrow County School for Boys and Balliol College, Oxford. For 25 years he worked for the daily “The Guardian” in Moscow and Washington. He has written several books including “The Cold War”. Walker lives in Washington where he is the Senior Director of the Global Business Policy Council (GBPC). He spends his summers in his holiday home in the Dordogne.
