The Day of the Jack Russell by Bateman took the Last Laugh Award for being judged the best humorous crime novel of 2009, while the audiobook version of Larsson's The Girl Who Played with Fire won the abridged and unabridged sections of the Sounds of Crime Award.

CrimeFest, which is the UK's international crime fiction convention, concluded yesterday (May 23rd) at Bristol's Marriott Royal Hotel. Authors such as Colin Dexter, Tonino Benacquista and Gyles Brandreth participated in the event.

Last year, Christopher Fowler won the Last Laugh Award with The Victoria Vanishes, while When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson took the unabridged Sounds of Crime Award.

Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo shared the abridged Sounds of Crime Award with Doors Open by Ian Rankin.
