New Reviews:Previous reviews can be found in the review archive and forthcoming titles can be found here plus for those still thinking about their favourite books of 2008, there's a list (generated from my database) of British/European crime novels (written by British/Europeans) published in the UK in 2008, here.

Maxine Clarke reviews the long awaited follow-up to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson: The Girl Who Played With Fire;
Terry Halligan reviews Julia Navarro's The Bible of Clay which he found to be one of his favourite reads of 2008
and Norman Price was similarly enamoured of Frank Tallis's Darkness Rising which is the fourth outing for Vienna's Dr Max Liebermann.
