The shortlist for the 2012 CWA International Dagger was announced this evening at Crimefest. This Dagger is a competition for crime, thriller, suspense or spy fiction novels which have been translated into English from their original language, for UK publication. The six books in contention for the Dagger this year are:

The Potter’s Field by Andrea Camilleri, translated by Stephen Sartarelli (Mantle)
I will have Vengeance by Maurizio de Giovanni, translated by Anne Milano Appel (Hersilia Press)
Until Thy Wrath Be Past by Åsa Larsson, translated by Laurie Thompson (Quercus/Maclehose)

I’ve read 3/6, currently reading Until Thy Wrath Be Past by Åsa Larsson and looking forward to reading next: I will have Vengeance and The Dark Valley. Stay tuned.
