Earlier this week I reviewed UNTIL THY WRATH BE PAST by Asa Larsson set in northern Norway, and certainly a strong representative of today's crop of top female crime fiction writers.
To complete the "easy challenge" celebrating 25 Years of Sisters in Crime, here are 6 excellent female crime fiction authors to look for.
They come from all over the world as you can see.
5.0, BURY YOUR DEAD, Louise Penny -Canada
4.8, AN UNCERTAIN PLACE, Fred Vargas - France
4.8, COLD JUSTICE, Katherine Howell - Australia
4.8, BOUND, Vanda Symon - New Zealand
4.8, SILENT VOICES, Ann Cleeves - Britain
This challenge has been created by Barbara Fister to celebrate 25 years of American Sisters in Crime.
Easy challenge: write a blog post about a work of crime fiction by a woman author; list five more women authors who you recommend.
Moderate challenge: write five blog posts about works of crime fiction by women authors. For each, mention another woman author who writes in a similar vein.
Expert challenge: write ten blog posts about works of crime fiction by women authors. For each, mention three similar women authors whose works you would recommend.
Deadline: whenever. Another one of the joys of reading for pleasure is not having deadlines. Also, feel free to recycle previous reviews.
If you tag your posts with “SinC25” Barbara will compile them. And if you tweet, use the hashtag #SinC25.
