Thanks to Lit Lists, I found this list of The Best Crime Novels of the last decade originally published in The Times of London back in February.
The list, interestingly, takes 1 book for each year of the decade and then writes a paragraph on why it was the best book for that year. Each pick is also accompanied by an honorable mention list of three more titles. What you get by perusing this list, is a snapshot of the current state of crime literature. You also get a nice reading list for those cold winter nights that are not too far off in the future.
If that isn't enough to get you to click on over and see the list for yourself, I will leave you with this teaser: 2009's choice is a Nodic Noir, but not the one you think...
