Three authors I couldn't live without

I've been tagged again by Karen over on AustCrime. I don't know how I can limit it to 3, but I'll give it my best shot. I'm spreading my choices around geographically.

Ian Rankin. I've loved Rebus since forever, and now he's retired I'm looking forward to seeing what Rankin gets up to now.
Runners up in the British category: Reginald Hill, Ken Bruen.

Jo Nesbo. Hopefully Rebus won't be jealous, but I've grown rather fond of Harry Hole. He may be a complete mess, but he's my kind of (fictional) guy. Nesbo is a brilliant writer ... and he is sort of dishy in a rugged crop-haired kind of way too. happy smiley
Runners up in the Scandinavian category: Arnaldur Indridason, Karin Fossum.

Peter Temple. Wonderful wonderful writer. The Jack Irish books are fabulous and The Broken Shore was nothing short of brilliant.
Runners up in the Australian category: Michael Robotham, Adrian Hyland.

There we are, I did it, only three!!


  1. re you go - I had no idea you had a blog too :)

    Well you are saved in my google reader now - so inspire me :)

  2. I think I've solved this Helen - we all just have to move next door to each other - that way we can all have each other's list as well as our own....
