  3. Police by Jo Nesbo. Translated by Don Bartlett 

  4. Norwegian by Night by Derek B Miller

  5. Last Will by Liza Marklund. Translated by Neil Smith

  6. La neblina del ayer  by Leonardo Padura. English title: Havana Fever

  7. The Deep Dark Sleep by Craig Russell

And three honourable mentions:

  1. Cold Hearts by Gunnar Staalesen. Translated by Don Bartlett

  1. Oh dear…I’ve only read one of these…which means there’s lots more titles to add to my wishlist. Just what I need 🙂 Glad you had such an enjoyable year of reading though

    1. Thank you Bernadette, I also have lots of books to pick up from your 104 books read this year, since I’ve probaly read only but a few. All the best.

  2. José Ignacio – You do have a great list here. And you’ve reminded me of a few I’ve meant to read and haven’t. Good to know it was a good reading year for you.

  3. I’m in complete agreement that McIlvanney and May deserve the top slots. I’ve only read the first of the ‘Laidlaw’ series so far, but looking forward to reading the other two in the next few months. Sadly, I’ve read all of the May’s including the new one, so at least a year to wait for another!

  4. Jose Ignacio: An interesting assembly of books. I have not read any of them. I am currently reading Bat by Jo Nesbo and really enjoying the book.
