Crime Fiction in Translation (International) Dagger Speculation (2022)

The CWA Dagger longlists are being announced at the weekend so I thought I'd better put up the list of eligibles for the Crime Fiction in Translation (International) Dagger. 

So here are 81 translated crime novels published between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2021, that I know about. Please let me know if I've missed any.

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

Stats: The breakdown by gender is 51 Male and 30 Female. Authors are from 25 countries. The most represented country is Sweden (15) followed by Germany (8) and France (8), Iceland (7) and Norway (7). Over 64 translators (including pairs of translators) brought you these titles, with at least 11 individuals having translated more than one. (I've put "tbc" when I cannot find the name of the translator.)
