Our best reads in 2009 - what I've read

Readers of MYSTERIES in PARADISE were invited to submit their best 10 crime fiction reads in 2009.

The rules were simple - the books could be published in any year, they just had to be crime fiction.

In the long run 56 contributors suggested 541 titles.

The top 26 titles were listed here.
A number of people have commented on what/how many they've read
I've marked the ones I've read and reviewed
