I received an email yesterday from the Salomonsson Agency informing me that Jo Nesbo’s novel The Leopard has won the Palle Rosenkrantz Prize.
This prize is awarded by the Danish Crime Writing Academy for the year’s Best Crime Novel and the list of previous winners reads like a Hall of Fame of Crime Writers. They include, among others, John Le Carre, P.D.James, Ruth Rendell, Colin Dexter, Peter Robinson, Hakan Nesser, Karin Alvtegen, Don Winslow, Leif Davidsen, Peter Hoeg, Gunnar Staalesen, Donna Leon, Ian Rankin and Reginald Hill.
The good news for me is that a copy of the The Snowman is in the post.
When am I going to find time to read all these books?
