Translated Crime Fiction (New Releases)

A friend of mine has asked me if I have any recommendation for next 23 April on crime fiction, published recently, translated into Spanish.

El hombre sin pasado (Peter May)


La salvación de una santa

I have not read any of this books yet, but they are all on my radar. I’m currently reading The Black House and will tackle The Lewis Man (Spanish title: El hombre sin pasado) soon. I’ll probably wait for the English translation of Larsson and Camilleri and have to decide whether I read Higashino books in order; The Devotion of Suspect X prior to Salvation of a Saint. Any suggestions?

You may click on the books for details.

Van Veeteren series by Håkan Nesser

This post was meant as a personal note, but it might be of interest to (casual or regular) readers of this blog

Following the publication in the UK of The Weeping Girl, 2013, I have put together the complete list of books in the series. Click on the book title for additional information. Please let me know if you find any errors or omissions. The action takes place in Maardam, a fictitious city in a made-up country that could be anywhere in northern Europe. It follows the murder cases investigated by Chief Inspector Van Veeteren – eventually the retired Chief Inspector – and his two crime squad protégés, Münster and Moreno.
