The 2011 CWA International Dagger Shortlist

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.

 

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.
