Hot off the keyboard – bibliophile reports from Iceland that Johann Theorin has won the Scandinavian prize for Nattfåk (Night Blizzard). Nice to have our foreign correspondents share the news – and with a photo. (Theorin is on the far left in the cap.)
Norm (aka Uriah) of Crime Scraps reports that Johan Theorin has won Sweden’s best crime novel of the year prize.
But our Australian friends will be unhappy that Peter Temple, nominated for best foreign crime novel, lost to Andrea Maria Schenkel.
