IV RBA International Prize for Crime Writing

American writer Harlan Coben won today the world’s most lucrative crime fiction prize (€ 125,000), the IV RBA (a Spanish media group) International Prize for Crime Writing, for his novel Live Wire (out in early spring 2011).

Crime Fiction Books New Releases in Spain, September 2010

TBR-2 Among the new releases in Spain this September I find the following titles most interesting:

Murder at the Savoy (Asesinato en el Savoy) by Per Wahloo and Maj Sjowall, the sixth in the Martin Beck series. Having read the first five books I cannot miss  it.

The Devil’s Star (La estrella del diablo) by Jo Nesbo, the third in the Oslo trilogy. I won’t miss it either, although I will read it in English.

Blanco nocturno by Ricardo Piglia, this is Piglia’s latest book, but I still have Plata Quemada (Money to Burn) in my TBR pile.

The Winter of Frankie Machine (El invierno de Frankie Machine) by Don Winslow. I still have to read first The Power of the Dog (also in my TBR pile)

Our Kind of Traitor (Un traidor como los nuestros) by John Le Carre. I can’t  miss this one, in English, but I may wait for the paperback.

There are also a couple of Harlan Coben and one from Dennis Lehane, but I have not read any of their books yet.

Obviously due to my limitations I know I’m missing some other books, but I’m open to suggestions and I will follow closely what other blogs have to say.
