Dror Mishani: Utsuddade spår (övers: Nils Larsson, Brombergs)
”Ett intensivt engagerande familjedrama i lågmäld ton” var motiveringen.                         

Two surprises with three previous winners beaten by Christoffer Carlsson for the Basta Svenska kriminalroman, and the translated/overseas prize, the Martin Beck Award, going to Israeli author Dror Mishani, whose book was nominated for the CWAInternational Dagger!

  1. Margot Kinberg says:

    Thanks for sharing, Norman.

  2. Keishon says:

    This is currently $1.99 at B&N. Off to purchase it. Thanks Norman.

  3. Mrs P. says:

    Thanks for this news, Norman. I thought that the Mishani was rather underrated, so it’s great to see it winning a prestigious award.
