The nominations for the basta svenska kriminalroman [best Swedish crime fiction] for 2010 have been announced. They are:

Camilla Grebe & Asa Traffe: Bittrare an doden
Lars Kepler: Paganinikontraktet
Olle Lonnaeus: Mike Larssons rymliga hjarta
Kristina Ohlsson: Tusenskonor
Leif G.W. Persson: Den doende detektiven

A book by Lars Kepler, The Hypnotist will be published in English next April; and Leif G.W. Persson’s Between Summer’s Longing and Winter’s End [the book I am reading at the moment] is available in English translation.

The nominations for the svenska oversatta kriminalroman [Martin Beck Award] are:

Faisa Guene: Sista Bestallningen psa Balto
Arnaldur Indridason: Morka strommar [Myrka] not translated into English.
Deon Meyer: Devil’s Peak
Iain Pears Stone’s Fall

I think the awards will be made on the 20 November.

    >I have read and reviewed the debuts by Grebe & Träff (a rather fine, psychological mystery) and Lars Kepter (exciting pageturner though not really exceptional).
