Kerrie is asking for people's top ten favorite crime fiction reads of this year from which she will collate the books and come up with the best crime fiction reads of 2009.
These are the rules:
it is about crime fiction you've read in 2009. Year of publication doesn't matter.
about 10 titles in the format of title, author (no need for description etc).
any order will do. If you think one was so much better than the others, you might like to put it in your list twice.
You have until Jan 7 to do it.
You can help on your own blog by writing about what I am doing and pointing people to this post, so they can come here and contribute their list.
If you want your lists to be counted, you'll need to go to the site and leave them in the comments.
Here are my favorites in alphabetical order. The two I loved the very best are those by Henning Mankell.
Among the Mad by Jacqueline Winspear (sixth in Maisie Dobbs series)
Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell (first in Wallander series)
Messenger of Truth by Jacqueline Winspear (fourth in the Maisie Dobbs series)
Ruling Passion by Reginald Hill (third in Dalziel & Pascoe series)
The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall (first in Vish Puri series)
The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan by Nancy Springer (fourth in Enola Holmes series)
The Cruellest Month by Hazel Holt (second in the Mrs. Malory series)
The Dogs of Riga by Henning Mankell (second in Wallander series)
The Skeleton in the Grass by Robert Barnard (stand-alone)
