Reminder: I'm collecting your best crime fiction reads for 2011

As I've done for the past 2 or 3 years,  I will be "collecting" titles again this year and then aggregating them, and publishing lists, early in 2012.
I've decided that I will collect in two ways:
  • If you write a post on your own blog that lists your best crime fiction reads, then you can simply add the URL to the Mr Linky below and I will visit your site and collect the titles.
  • Your alternative is to add your list as a comment to this post. Other comments appear on my initial post at the beginning of December and I will collect them up too.
The books you choose need not have been published in 2011, but need to come under the category of crime fiction.

You choose how many titles are in your list - I'll accept any number of titles up to 20. (you might like to decide a cut off point in your ratings - mine might have to have a rating of 4.9 or above, but I need to have a serious think about that)

Please feel free to use this icon on your blog post, to advertise the meme, and encourage others to add their contributions to this page.

Remember, the Mr Linky below is for the URL of your blog post, not the titles themselves.
If you don't have a blog post just list the titles and authors in a comment.

"Collecting" will close on January 7.

Important: how to find this post when you are ready to add your list - look for the icon in the right hand margin.

Kerrie added a link to my favourites post but Pandaemonium, Caleb's Crossing and Kinglake-350 are not crime fiction :)

Kerrie: I just linked my "Best of 2011" which includes non-fiction choices. Please delete them if you want.
