Some photos from the Madrid countryside taken near Prádena del Rincón last Thursday.
Regular or occasional readers of this blog can check here the 2011 CWA International Dagger Shortlist. You can also find below my posts on 5 of the 7 candidates. I’m planning to read soon The Saint-Florentin Murders by Jean-François Parot, my last acquisition, but River of Shadows by Valerio Varesi does not appeal to me.
- The Wings of the Sphinx by Andrea Camilleri
- Three Seconds by Anders Roslund & Börge Hellström
- An Uncertain Place by Fred Vargas
- Death on a Galician Shore by Domingo Villar
I’ve very much enjoyed reading Camilleri, Vargas, Villar and Mallo, but if I have to pick up a favourite this will be Needle in a Haystack by Ernesto Mallo.
