I review Karin Fossum's latest Inspector Sejer, The Caller, tr. K E Semmel;

Amanda Gillies reviews Elizabeth Haynes debut, Into the Darkest Corner which has just been shortlisted for the "New Blood" Dagger;

Michelle Peckham reviews the fifth Joe Hunter from Matt Hilton, Blood and Ashes which is just out in paperback;

Susan White reviews the paperback release of Erin Kelly's The Poison Tree which has also been shortlisted for the "New Blood" Dagger;

I review the radio play version of John le Carre's The Russia House on the blog;

Maxine Clarke reviews Michael Ridpath's second Icelandic novel, 66 Degrees North which sounds bang up to date politically

and Lizzie Hayes reviews L C Tyler's Herring on the Nile which she says is more fun than a certain other crime book set on the Nile!

Thanks, as always, for this round-up, Karen. A nice variety of different kinds of books.

Love the new look! Thanks for these reviews- I definitely recommend 66 deg North and The Poison Tree. As a result of the review of the book by E Haynes, I've downloaded it to my Kindle (at 99p - how could anyone resist?!)

Beautiful new look! - so distracting one can almost forget how expensive a post like this is! ;)
