Thriller of the year
Svenska Deckarakademin (the Swedish Crime Fiction Academy) has chosen Arne Dahl’s book “Viskleken” (“Chinese Whispers”) as the best crime novel of the year.

The Academy states: "With ‘Viskleken’ Arne Dahl proves that he is a master at interpreting contemporary life and incorporating both atmosphere and genuine urgency into the plot.” Arne Dahl, a celebrated author, critic and editor who is also known as Jan Arnald, is perhaps known for his bestselling Intercrime series, involving the A-team, a group highly trained in dealing with criminal cases in Sweden.
