My Favourite Reads of 2013

2013 was my last year as a judge for the International Dagger but I'll still be reading a lot of crime in translation in my new role as administrator for The Petrona Award.

Individual members of the Euro Crime review team will be revealing their favourite European/translated reads over the next few days which will then be followed by a post revealing the overall Euro Crime favourite authors, titles and translators of 2013.

My favourite reads of 2013

Kishwar Desai - Witness the Night
Robert Galbraith - The Cuckoo's Calling
Keigo Higashino - Salvation of a Saint tr. Alexander O Smith with Elye J Alexander
M R C Kasasian - The Mangle Street Murders
Pierre Lemaitre - Alex tr. Frank Wynne
Jo Nesbo - Police tr. Don Bartlett.
Roslund & Hellstrom - Two Soldiers tr. Kari Dickson
Fred Vargas - The Ghost Riders of Ordebec tr. Sian Reynolds

Karen - You have some terrific reads there. Sorry to hear you won't be doing the Dagger judging again this year, but the Petrona eligibles should indeed keep you busy...
