Favourite reads in 2006

I'm collating the other Euro Crime reviewers' five favourite British and European reads of 2006 for a page on the website, but in the meantime here are my choices:

Andrea Camilleri - Excursion to Tindari
Gianrico Carofiglio - A Walk in the Dark
Olive Etchells - Footprints of the Devil
Dominique Manotti - Dead Horsemeat
Fred Vargas - The Three Evangelists

About 1/3rd of my reading in 2006 was of European crime in translation and included five of the nominees for the International Dagger, three of which are in the above list.

Some great choices there Karen. I am just about to finish Excursion to Tindari. I have enjoyed Camilleri's usual blend of mafia, seafood, beautiful women and humour so much that I am going straight on to Rounding the Mark.

Have you read Scent of the Night?
