(The writing style in The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie has been described as reminiscent of the "Golden Age of crime writing," influenced by the author's appreciation for the work of Dorothy L.

and I wanted to third it too.

Well..........not fast enough......lagging behind in time today...
With a description like that, I'm going to read it whether or not it wins.

Second A Dark-Adapted Eye.

I'd rather read a mystery than just about anything except maybe Wodehouse so I've read pretty much all of these. Excellent choices. This Ruth Rendell/ Barbara Vine psychological mystery is on my TBR list. It's #29 on the British Crime Writers' Association top 100 crime novels.

I nominate The Redbreast by Jo Nesbø.

From Amazon:
Quote:
No disrespect meant to Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, but Jo Nesbø, the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman, is the most exciting Scandinavian thriller writer in the crime fiction business. The Redbreast is a fabulous introduction to Nesbø’s tough-as-nails series protagonist, Oslo police detective Harry Hole. A brilliant and epic novel, breathtaking in its scope and design—winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel and selected as the best Norwegian crime novel ever written by members of Norway’s book clubs—The Redbreast is a chilling tale of murder and betrayal that ranges from the battlefields of World War Two to the streets of modern-day Oslo. Follow Hole as he races to stop a killer and disarm a ticking time-bomb from his nation’s shadowy past. Vogue magazine says that “nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller writer”…and nobody does it better than Jo Nesbø! James Patterson fans should also take note.
It is available at the all the stores, as well as Overdrive.

The Redbreast was the first Harry Hole novel translated in English (2006). The Bat, which was actually Harry Hole #1, will be released July 2, 2013 and is available for pre-order. The Cockroaches (#2) is not available in the U.S.

Apparently The Redbreast is thought to be the best introduction to the Harry Hole series.

I'll nominate In Pale Battalions by Robert Goddard.

Quote:
Six months after the sudden death of her husband, Leonora Galloway sets out on a trip to France with her daughter Penelope. At last the time has come when secrets can be shared and explanations begin... Leonora takes her daughter to the battlefields of WW1, where her father is commemorated on the Thiepval Monument. But the date of his death is surprising, and reveals that Captain John Hallows cannot possibly have been Leonora's real father.

This is only the start of a series of revelations that span three generations of a distinguished aristocratic family who are not what they seem. Penelope must piece together a tale of war, of loss, of greed, deception and vice - and the perpetrator of a murder left unsolved for more than half a century...

Sure why not? It's a SciFi novel worming its way into another category again, but if enough people want that let it be. Third it.
