I very much doubt whether I may be able to read them all before the announcement of the winner at the annual international crime fiction event CrimeFest, to be held in Bristol 14-17 May 2015. In any case I plan to take a break in The TBR Double Dog Dare, to be able to read as many titles as possible from the shortlist above. So far I’ve read only one, The Hunting Dogs by Jørn Lier Horst tr. Anne Bruce (Sandstone Press; Norway) my review is here.
