There is something darkly ironic about Stieg Larsson being nominated for the "Best First Novel" award, especially when you think about the fact that Larsson died before experiencing any of his success as a novelist (and only two more novels remain to be published). In my humble opinion, though, Larsson's novel should have been nominated and become winner in both categories (Best Novel and Best First Novel).

Why is it ironic?

A surprisingly strong list. Kudos to the judges. (A little baffled by the inclusion of HOLLYWOOD CROWS, though.)


Stieg did the work, wrote the books, he deserves it, dead or alive. Originally planned to do a series of 10, like Sjöwall & Wahlöö.
