Best Swedish Crime Novel 2011

Posted: November 20, 2011 in Book Awards, Sweden

Arne Dahl has won the award for Best Swedish Crime Novel 2011 with Viskelen [Chinese Whispers]. I hope this means we will get some more of his books translated into English. Viskelen is the first part in a new quartet of books about international crime and the controversial Europol unit formed to combat it, more details here.

My review of Misterioso, Arne Dahl’s first book in the Intercrime series, translated by Tiina Nunnally.

    Thanks, Norman. I enjoyed Misterioso and hope they translate his back catalogue quickly 😉

  2. Sounds good. I must read some more books by Arne Dahl, but with my TBR, I´d better try the library – or my shelves will cave in 🙂

  3. Lauren says:

    New series, but it looks like the same characters from the A-Team series. I should get to it fairly soon (relatively speaking!), as Dahl’s been translated into German fairly reliably over the years, and I see the German rights have alrady been sold.
