The poll have now closed for voting on who you want to and think will win this year's CWA International Dagger. The Dagger winner will be announced tomorrow evening at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival. There were around 50% more votes this year compared to 2009.
There were 222 votes in the "want to win" and 157 votes in the "think will win". In both cases the winner was The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest by Stieg Larsson followed by Hypothermia by Arnaldur Indridason though the margin is small in the "want to win" and huge in the "think will win".
The other titles, which are a bit obscured in the snapshot below, are Badfellas (Benacquista), August Heat (Camilleri), Thirteen Hours (Meyer) and The Darkest Room (Theorin).
I will remove the polls in the next couple of days. Many thanks to all those who took part and read the shortlist.
