Turning Out for the Key

Please excuse the paucity of new posts on this page over the last week; I’ve been working on a major piece for another publication. But I wanted to raise my head from that long enough to bring you the shortlist of nominees for the 2020 Glass Key Award. That commendation will be presented by the Crime Writers of Scandinavia to the author whose work is judged the best Nordic crime novel of last year. Here are the contenders:

Dødfunden (Found Dead), by Gretelise Holm (Denmark)
Den åttonde tärnan (The Eighth Bridesmaid), by Eva Frantz (Finland)
Svik (Betrayal), by Lilja Sigurðardóttir (Iceland)
Kniv (Knife), by Jo Nesbø (Norway)
Skuggjägaren (Shadow Hunter), by Camilla Grebe (Sweden)

The winner is expected to be announced in August.
