International Dagger Speculation (2013)

Now 2012's prize for the CWA International Dagger has been awarded we can turn our attention to the next crop of titles, eligible for 2013's crown.

So here's the list so far of translated crime novels published between June 2012 and May 2013 ie the period of eligibility. There's 75* so far (cf 77 last year). NB. Only 1 book per author can be submitted for consideration.

For ease of purchase/library reservation here they are listed by UK month of publication:

In addition to the list I have set up a Good Reads widget on the right-hand side of the blog. This allows the covers to be visible plus you can add them to your wish-list on Good Reads. I won't be filling in the rating system though! Should you wish to, you can subscribe to this list through RSS at: I've added as many as I can find though I have used the original covers if the English one isn't on Good Reads yet.

I've also included the country of birth and gender of the author(s):

*this total includes titles published by Amazon Crossing, which I have flagged. I am not sure if these count as UK publications however I imagine people interested in this list will also be interested in these books.

ooh great, I've been waiting for this list. I've read a few and now can get going on some more ;-) Thanks, as ever, for creating it.

Would the CWA be bold enough to honor a novel first published in 1966 in its original language? One hopes so. A Private Venus very clearly deserves to be among the favorites.
