The Crime Writers’ Association Dagger Awards were announced 24th October on ITV3. They put the BAFTA’s on ITV1, so why are the CWA’s relegated to the backwater of ITV3? Anyway, the novel of the year went to Peter May for Entry Island and a favourite author of mine, Robert Harris, won the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for An Officer and a Spy. Interestingly, Terry Hayes’s terrific spy novel, I Am Pilgrim, was also nominated in this category. Not bad for a first attempt.
