Crime Fiction in Translation (International) Dagger Speculation (2024)

The CWA Dagger longlists were announced this weekend so I thought I'd better, rather belatedly, put together the list of eligibles for the Crime Fiction in Translation (formerly the International) Dagger 2024. I'll post the Longlist separately.

So here are 70 translated crime novels published between 1 January 2023 and 31 December 2023, 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 and the publisher.

Stats: The breakdown by gender is 34 Male and 33 Female and 3 sets of Female and Male authors writing together. Authors are from 19 countries. The most represented country is Sweden (11) followed by France and Japan (8 each) and Iceland (7). Over 56 translators (including pairs of translators) brought you these titles, with at least 9 individuals having translated more than one.
