'Taut, tense and at times very close to being too disturbing to watch.' A very positive **** review for The Treatment Film from the Daily Mail. Have you seen it yet?

Really enjoyed this adaptation of one of My favourite Mo Hayder books, which saw tonight (appropriately in Brixton, where it was originally set) I thought the characters were excellent, and very much as I imagined them, likewise the look of the film. It is rare that a film does justice to a book, so full credit to all concerned. The sensitive subject matter was handled well, whilst not shying away too much.
We were lucky enough to have an after film q&a with Hans Herbots and Geert Van Rampelburg too.

I highly recommend this film to fans of Mo and newcomers alike.

My mother in law gave me the Skin book as a gift, she thought it'd appeal to my "macabre" taste in books, she was right! Totally hooked :D I've just bought the others in the series ^_^

Mo Hayder


Rel: CD14-78 DS (status: approved)

Ref: 00478-WD

Mo Hayder has written some of the most terrifying crime thrillers you will ever read.  Her first novel, Birdman, was hailed as a 'first-class shocker' by the Guardian and her follow-up, The Treatment was voted by The Times one of 'the top ten most scary thrillers ever written'. In 2012 Gone won the prestigious Edgars Best Novel award.


Mo's books are 100% authentic, drawing on her long research association with several UK police forces and on her personal encounters with criminals and prostitutes.


Mo left school at 15 and has worked as a barmaid, security guard, English teacher, and even a hostess in a Tokyo club. She has an MA in film making from the American University in Washington DC and an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University. She now lives in England's West Country and is a full-time writer.
