The top award of the Semana Negra (Noir Week) festival in Gijón for best crime novel published originally in Spanish (Castilian) in 2010, the Hammett Prize, went this year to Ricardo Piglia (Argentina) for Blanco Nocturno (Nocturnal Target).
The announcement was made today during the celebration of the XXIV Semana Negra de Gijon festival. My review of Blanco Nocturno is HERE.
