All Dahl-ed Up

Norman Price reports in Crime Scraps Review that author and critic Arne Dahl (aka Jan Arnald) “has won the award for Best Swedish Crime Novel 2011 with Viskelen (Chinese Whispers), ... the first part in a new quartet of books about international crime and the controversial Europol unit formed to combat it.”

Misterioso, the first English-translated work in Dahl’s Intercrime series, was released in the States this last summer by Pantheon.
