  1. José Ignacio – There are some terrific novels in that list! And you have reminded me that there are a few novels on that list that I still need to read.

    1. I’m also looking forwrad to read some on the list, mainly the ones from Phillip Kerr, Camilleri, Markaris and de Giovanni. Have alredy read Death of a Red Heroine, Arctic Chill and The Quarry.

  2. Jose Ignacio: I would be interested in the criteria. Some, in particular, Death of a Red Heroine were published some years ago. What makes a book eligible in a given year?

    1. Thanks for your remark Bill. I should have stated Top 10 Crime Fiction Books published in Spain this year, regardless of what year they were published originally.
