If you click HERE you can access the list of “eligible titles” for 2013 International Dagger. Karen Meek does a great job collecting all this information every year. Thank you very much, Karen. There are 56 translated crime novels so far (cf 77 last year) published between June 2012 and May 2013 ie the period of eligibility.

  • Asa Larsson – The Black Path tr. Marlaine Delargy
