Garry Disher wins second Ned Kelly Award

6th September 2010

Australian author Garry Disher has scooped the country's most prestigious crime fiction award for the second time in four years.

Disher, whose works include The Dragon Man and Kittyhawk Down, was named the winner of the 2010 Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction for his most recent novel Wyatt.

The author said he was 'convinced' he would not win the prize after Lenny Bartulin's The Black Russian and Bleed For Me by Michael Robotham were included on the shortlist.

He added: 'I feel greatly honoured and pleased that I'd been able to recreate Wyatt and his world and the language tone again after a long hiatus.'

The Ned Kelly Award was founded in 1998 to recognise the leading lights of Australia's crime fiction community. Past winners include Robotham, Peter Temple, Gabrielle Lord and Shane Maloney.

Last year, Deep Water by Peter Corris and Kel Robertson's Smoke & Mirrors shared the prize after the judging panel was unable to decide an overall winner.
