"International Noir Fiction," a site recently added to our links list, is worth exploring in depth. Here's a post from 2005.
Amazing find. There goes the next five years!
I just spent some time in a couple of bookstores in Paris -- seeing old favorites with new eyes in the "Roman Policier" section.A British writer called R.J. Ellory is taken very seriously there -- also Harlan Coben, Dennis Lehane (beautiful editions) and James Ellroy, of course. Scandinavians without end.Check out the "Polars du Grand Nord" here:http://www.amazon.fr/gp/feature.html//ref=bt_atcg_mine_cta?ie=UTF8&docId=1000454833&pf_rd_m=A1X6FK5RDHNB96&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=1YRYC7A3GGMMQ8NJK6C9&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=216551447&pf_rd_i=301134
Went staright to Amazon and ordered an Ellory. Almost a galvanic reaction, at this point.
