Nothing like a pleasant summer day for a carnival. And since there isn’t one on offer in the northern hemisphere, let’s head south to Karen’s place, pull up a hammock and see if she has some of her fine cider on hand. In a way, we’re coming full circle, since Karen hosted the very first carnival at her marvelous site, AustCrime.
This time, she points out lots of sites worth exploring. Some offer short fiction, and others a running commentary on crime fiction in Australia, New Zealand, or Africa.
And she has her fingers crossed for Peter Temple, whose brilliant book, The Broken Shore, is up for the Martin Beck award this year. (Uriah has the entire rundown at Crime Scraps.)
Which is a nice segue to where the carnival is going next. Pull on your boots and parkas, we’re headed to the archivist’s own Scandinavian Crime Fiction blog.
