INDEPENDENT FOREIGN FICTION PRIZE
Thanks to Shots magazine where I picked up the news that Philippe Claudel's superb novel Brodeck's Report has won this year's Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.
A few comments and thoughts about crime books set on the mainland of Europe, with titbits about real eurocrime. We hear so much about crime in the USA that many people imagine that Europe is a crime free zone. In crime fiction Europe has become a real challenger to the Americans, but unfortunately real life crime especially in Britain is increasing as well.
