BLOOD WEDDING shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger

Pierre Lemaitre, the master of noir and prolific collector of literary weaponry is on track to add yet another dagger to his collection. Blood Wedding, the chilling story of a young woman haunted by her past and running to escape the demons in her present, has been shortlisted for the 2017 CWA International Dagger. 

Pierre was previously awarded the International Dagger for The Great Swindle (2016), Camille (2015) and jointly with Fred Vargas' The Ghost Riders of Ordebec with Alex in 2013.

As we keep our fingers crossed for the awards ceremony on October 26, our warmest congratulations go to Pierre and his translator Frank Wynne, and to all other shortlisted authors, who may be discovered here.
