International Dagger Speculation (2011) Update


Karen at Euro Crime has updated the list of titles eligible for the 2011 CWA International Dagger award. So far I have read:

I’m planning to read soon: Liza Marklund – Red Wolf

And I have in my wish list:

  • Andrea Camilleri – The Wings of the Sphinx
  • Karin Fossum – Bad Intentions
  • Marek Krajewski – The Phantoms of Breslau
  • Hakan Nesser – The Inspector and Silence
  • Yrsa Sigurdardottir – Ashes to Dust
  • Jan Costin Wagner – Silence
  • Jo Nesbo – The Leopard
  • Camilla Lackberg – The Gallows Bird
  • Mari Jungstedt – The Dead of Summer
  • Fred Vargas – An Uncertain Place

Which titles from Karen’s list have you read so far?

Which titles and/or authors are more appealing to you?

  1. >You are doing so well Jose Ignacio. I have not read a single one of those books – though do have a couple on my TBR. One of my problems is that I am behind the current book in several series and I have a 'thing' about not reading out of order. Oh well, I'll wait to see what the shortlist looks like before deciding whether or not to tackle it this year.

  2. >You bring quite an interesting issue, Bernadette. Should we read all authors in order? I personaly have decided in some cases no to. If their last book is appealing I'll always have time to get back to the previous books.

  3. >José Ignacio – I, too, am very impressed with your progress on this! You and Bernadette do raise an interesting question, really. Is it necessary to read all authors in order? I admit that I don't always, although it's my preference. If it's a very good series, I can make enough sense of any one given novel that I don't need to have read previous entries in the series. Then I can go back later if I want.

  4. >I've only read BAD INTENTIONS and none of the others feature anywhere on TBR. I'll watch your posts with interest Jose Ignacio
