Best European Crime Novel

In case you missed it, the Gumshoe awards were announced yesterday and the winner of The Best European Crime Novel (published in the US in 2006) is 'When the Devil Holds the Candle' by Karin Fossum.

The full list of nominees and winners is here.

I plan to upload my review of the audio version at the weekend but in the meantime you can listen here to a sample of David Rintoul's narration.

A worthy winner. As I was mentioning on Peter's blog Detectives Beyond Borders recently, I have read a couple of Fossim's books and very much liked them. The problem is that it was so long ago that I can't remember which they are, so am not sure where to pick up. Ah, the fading into old age that comes to us all. Eventually, I suppose, I'll just read the same book over and over, and be none the wiser.
