Stieg Larsson’s first book The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo won four prizes at Boucheron including Best British novel. This apparently was because it was published here in the UK by Quercus during the required time frame.

But it gives me a chance to post again a photo of Stieg’s English translator American Steven Murray and his charming wife Tiina Nunnally in a very British setting.

I don’t think it requires much expertise to predict more prizes for these two authors with the sequels.
