Poll Results on International Dagger - 2011

The polls 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 this evening at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival.

There were 147 votes in the "want to win" and 68 votes in the "will win". In both cases the winner was An Uncertain Place by Fred Vargas followed by Wings of the Sphinx by Andrea Camilleri in the "want to win" and Three Seconds by Roslund-Hellstrom in the "will win".

The other titles, Needle in a Haystack by Mallo, The Saint-Florentin Murders by Parot, River of Shadows by Varesi and Death on a Galician Shore by Villar, all received votes in both polls.

I will remove the polls in the next couple of days. Many thanks to all those who took part and read the shortlist.

Vargas is enduringly popular, it seems, unless she has a Tolkein-like internet savvy army of fans ;-)
