FRENCH PRIZE WINNER
This book is my next read and I find it surprising that it was published in France in 1991 and it took 13 years before it reached the UK in an English edition.
After all Holy Smoke won the Grand Prix de la Litterature Policiere, the Prix Mystere de la Critique and the 813 Trophy in one year.
Now that the Scandinavians have been discovered is it not time for more French crime writers to be published in English.
Well done Bitter Lemon Press for their recent publications.
