Best International Crime Crime

The Mammoth Book of Best International Crime, edited by Maxim Jakubowski came out in 2009. There are 36 short stories from around the globe and I've scanned in the Contents pages so you can see the range of authors.

I've dipped in and read Camilla Lackberg's entry: A Really Shitty Day, translated by Susan Lloyd which gives the background to Patrik Hedstrom being single in The Ice Princess!

Thanks! I definitely want to read this one, given some of the authors in that table of contents. Thanks for the tip - I'll put it on my birthday list. (My birthday isn't for a while but I have plenty to read until then ;-). )

I've got this, read some of it, it's very good value, very good quality writing.
