International Dagger Speculation (2017)

It's time to consider the titles eligible for the 2017 CWA International Dagger.

Here's the list of translated crime novels published between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017 ie the period of eligibility. There's 100* so far.

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. Should you wish to, you can subscribe to this list through RSS. I've used the original cover if the English one isn't on Good Reads yet.

In the list below I've also included the country of birth and gender of the author(s) plus the translator's name (where I can find it) and the publisher.

*this total includes titles published by AmazonCrossing. 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.

I've read several of these authors, but the only book on this list that I've read is The Ice Beneath Her. I'm looking forward to several of these books--especially Bernard Minier's new one. :)
