Congratulations to all the nominees.

I’ve only read so far The Defenceless by Kati Hiekkapelto (Orenda Books, 2015) Translated by David Hackston (click the book title to access my review).

Might not be able to read them all, before the announcement of the winner at the Gala Dinner on 21 May (during the annual international crime fiction event CrimeFest, held in Bristol 19-22 May 2016), but I plan to read soon The Caveman by Jorn Lier Horst tr. Anne Bruce (Sandstone Press, 2015) already on my TBR pile.

What other titles do you fancy?

My preferences, in no particular order, are: The Drowned Boy by Karin Fossum tr. Kari Dickson, Dark As My Heart by Antti Tuomainen tr. Lola Rogers, and Satellite People by Hans Olav Lahlum tr. Kari Dickson.
