No less than three CWA winners – set in Australia, India and Sweden – have been championed on Mrs. Peabody Investigates:
- Jane Harper’s The Dry, Winner of the CWA Gold Dagger. See full review here: ‘Murder in the Outback. Jane Harper’s The Dry‘.
- Abir Mukherjee’s A Rising Man, Winner of the CWA Endeavour Historical Dagger. See an illuminating interview with Abir here.
- Leif G.W. Persson, translated by Neil Smith, The Dying Detective, winner of the CWA International Dagger. See full review here and an extract here, with some delightful photos of Günter’s Stockholm hotdog kiosk. The Dying Detective was also shortlisted for this year’s Petrona Award.
Huge congratulations also to Ann Cleeves and Mari Hannah on their richly deserved awards!
If you’re looking for new crime reads or present ideas, then I would thoroughly recommend having a browse on the individual Dagger webpages, each of which lists the winning, shortlisted and longlisted titles. Here’s a link to the Historical Dagger page so you can see – it’s quite a treasure trove. Links to the other Daggers are on the left-hand side.
