This afternoon, I will be meeting the three esteemed judges: Barry Forshaw, Kat Hall and Sarah Ward to determine the shortlist for the 2014 Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel of the Year.
I think this will be a long meeting as there're are lots of well regarded titles on the eligibles list.
I won't be online until the evening but I'd love to see what other readers think should be on the shortlist and what their winner would be.
The shortlist will be announced in March and the winner will be announced in May at Crimefest.
The winner of the 2013 Petrona Award was Liza Marklund for Last Will translated by Neil Smith.
