The CWA has announced the qualifying period for the 2007 Duncan Lawrie Dagger awards:
"Any UK publisher may enter books provided that the book is relevant to the appropriate award and was published between June 1 2006 and May 31 2007."
Earlier this year I put together a list of books I considered eligible* for the 2006 International Dagger. That list only included translated crime fiction from Europe. I'd like to create a similar list for 2007 but also include non-European translated crime. So far I've come up with only two titles...'Grotesque' by Natsuo Kirino (Feb 07, Japan) and 'Havana Blue' by Leonardo Padura (Apr 07, Cuba).
I know the cut-off date is a few months away but I'd have expected some books out by May to be listed on amazon by now.
The challenge is to tell me what authors/books I'm missing! (NB. They have to be published in the UK.)
*I did ask the CWA for this information but they were unable to supply it.
