Behind Closed Doors by JJ Mash: Crime novel set in Zurich
Interview with Jill Mash, author if the Zurich based crime novel "Behind Closed Doors".
Please introduce yourself: who you are, where you’re from, what brought you to Zurich and what do you do. I’m Jill Marsh and I come from Wales. Love brought me to Zürich – my husband is Swiss. As well as writing novels, I teach Business English, I’m a magazine columnist and I arrange Zürich writers’ events with Nuance Words.
What inspired you to set your crime novel in Zurich? The atmosphere of Zürich itself was the inspiration. I get the impression of a city with a deceptively calm surface, where much of the action is hidden away. That’s why this book had to be set here. Hence the title.
Is Zurich a fruitful setting for a novel? Very much so. It’s a city of contrasts, full of personality and with some dramatic extremes. For example, I was able to set one scene in Langstrasse and another on the Gold Coast.
Will the readers recognise some locations? Definitely. I’ve tried to be as accurate as I can in my representation and only taken a little poetic licence with my police station and the layout of Fraumünster.
What do you like best about living in Zurich? So many things, but probably the seasons. Each has its own identity, rituals, festivals and even food.
Which is your favourite bar? Depends on my mood, but a regular haunt is Corazon on Zähringerplatz. And the James Joyce is perfect for a quiet read.
Your favourite restaurant? I don’t eat meat, so it has to be Hiltl and its gorgeous veggie buffet. But a tip I got from your newsletter, Five Spices Thai, was also an excellent discovery. Thanks for that.
You're welcome! What is your favourite club? These days, the only clubs I frequent are book clubs.
So the schools are open again, the city is busier and back to normal. So now’s the time to get out of town again. One of the great things about the end of the summer holiday season is that traffic at the Gotthard tunnel eases and

The two organisations, Sagittaria and Asociación Impulso Solidario, are raising money for the purchase of 1,000 hectares of forest. This purchase will ensure that the large landowners’ forest will be given back to the descendants of its lawful owners: The Mbyá-Guaraní in Misiones.
CHF 10,000 is an important step, making it possible to purchase the first piece of the forest. However, to reach the final goal of 1000 hectares, a lot more donations will be required. Please don’t let the amount of your donation be restricted by the CHF 10,000 final goal. More donation money means that more forest can be secured for the Mbyá and the future.
