Progress on reading books eligible for the 2010 International Dagger

It is a while (5 March, in fact) since I have posted about my attempt to read as many as possible of the 61 books eligible for this year's International Dagger award – the annual CWA prize for a novel originally written in another language and translated into English. My end-date is the announcement of the shortlist, which will happen at CrimeFest next month (May). 

In my 5 March post, I reported that I had read fifteen of the books, which are listed below, DMatterwith links to my reviews either at Euro Crime or at Petrona. 

Mikkel Birkegaard – The Library of Shadows (review t/c)
Andrea Camilleri – August Heat  
Leif Davidsen – The Woman from Bratislava (review t/c)
Karin Fossum – The Water's Edge
Petra Hammesfahr – The Lie
Anne Holt – Death in Oslo
Arnaldur Indridason – Hypothermia
Camilla Lackberg – The Stonecutter
Stieg Larsson – The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest
Deon Meyer – Thirteen Hours
Jo Nesbo – The Snowman (review t/c)
Claudia Pineiro – Thursday Night Widows
Markaris_greece Andrea Maria Schenkel – Ice Cold
Gunnar Staalesen – The Consorts of Death
Johan Theorin – The Darkest Room

Since then, I have read the following eligible books:

Tonino Benaquista – Badfellas
Eugenio Fuentes – At Close Quarters
Luigi Guicciardi – Inspector Cataldo's Criminal Summer
Henning Mankell – The Man from Beijing
Dominique Manotti- Affairs of State 
Petros Markaris – Che Committed Suicide (review t/c)
Juli Zeh – Dark Matter (review t/c) 

This takes my total to 22, that is, about one-third of the total eligible. As things stand, I think the judges have a real problem on their hands, because only three of these 22 are, in my opinion, not likely to make the shortlist. I would be happy to see any of the remaining 19 go forward to the next round! Maybe I have been lucky in the particular books I have read out of the 61 possibles. (Not all of these 61 will have been put forward for the competition by the publishers, I guess, so it is possible that the judges will have an easier task if some of them were not submitted!)

In the meantime, any recommendations from among the remaining 39 books would be much appreciated.
