I have read earlier in the year two books that I would classify as strong candidates for the Petrona shortlist; Death of the Demon by Anne Holt translator Anne Bruce, and Linda, As In the Linda Murder by Leif G.W.Persson translator Neil Smith.

Over the next few weeks I hope to read Petrona candidates:

The Long Shadow-Liza Marklund translated by Neil Smith

Police-Jo Nesbo translated by Don Bartlett

Strange Shores-Arnaldur Indridason translated by Victoria Cribb

and considering the International Dagger success of French authors  I thought I should read Summertime All The Cats Are Bored-Philippe Georget translated by Steven Rendall.

    I very much look forward to your reviews, Norman.

  2. Norman – Those look like excellent candidates. I’ll be very much interested to know what you think of them.
