Alex by Pierre Lemaitre is one of the BEST crime novels I have read in many years. I actually wish I could read French so I could devour his other novels, looking forward to his next translation. Some fantastic crime coming from Quercus in 2013.

Thanks for the list, I'm looking forward to the new Elly Griffiths, & will finally be able to catch up with David Mark's debut. The Roslund/Hellstrom is also one I'll read, despite my disappointment with their last one (Cell 8).

Given Kylie's comment, I might also check out Alex when the time comes - thanks, Kylie.
