Asa Larsson wins Best Swedish Crime Novel 2012

Posted: November 24, 2012 in Book Awards, Scandinavia, Sweden

Good news for her many fans is that the Swedish Crime Academy named Asa Larsson’s Till offer at Molok [Sacrifice to Moloch] as the Best Swedish Crime novel of 2012. Asa Larsson won this award back in 2004 with The Blood Spilt. Let us hope we don’t have to wait too long for an English translation of Till offer at Molok.

The best foreign crime novel award was won by Peter Robinson’s Before the Poison.

    I am immensely pleased! She’s been on my A+ list since I first encountered her novels. She’s also very cute, so I hope she knows how devoted to her I am. What I am now awaiting is the translation of Till offer at Moloch and anything more whatsoever from Karin Alvtegen. Thanks for passing on the news, dear Norman.

    Congratulations to her! Although I liked her first few books, I loved Until Thy Wrath Be Past, even with the ghost narrating; that was an excellent plot device in that book.
    Can’t wait until this new one is translated and published or shipped across the pond.
