CWA Gold Dagger longlist announced

25th July 2011

The longlist for the 2011 Crime Writers' Association (CWA) Gold Dagger Award has been announced, with eight books in contention for the GBP 2,500 prize.

It is awarded each year to the best crime novel written in the past 12 months, with this year's candidates including Tom Franklin's Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter and Steve Hamilton's The Lock Artist.

Hanging Hill by Mo Hayder, Lucretia Grindle's The Villa Triste and Michael Koryta's The Cypress House are also in contention for the award, along with M. J. McGrath's White Heat, Snowdrops by A. D. Miller and Denise Mina's The End of the Wasp Season.

A judging panel including bookseller Richard Reynolds and crime author Christopher Fowler will narrow the longlist down to a four-strong shortlist by August 22nd, with the winner announced during a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London, on October 7th.

Last year's CWA Gold Dagger Award was won by Belinda Bauer for Blacklands, described by the judges as 'the very best of the genre'.
