Thorin and Delargy beat out competition that included:
Badfellas by Tonino Benacquista, translated from the French by Emily Read.
August Heat by Andrea Camilleri, translated from the Italian by Stephen Sartarelli.
Hypothermia by Arnaldur Indriðason, translated from the Icelandic by Victoria Cribb
Thirteen Hours by Deon Meyer, translated from the Afrikaans by K.L. Seegers.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, whose correct placement of the apostrophe, in contradistinction to the novel's American edition, was not enough to secure a triumph over Larsson's fellow Swede. Reg Keeland was the translator.
Ruth Dudley Edwards won the Non-Fiction Dagger for Aftermath: The Omagh Bombing And the Families' Pursuit of Justice.
