Quai du Polar 2021: You’ll maybe remember my Last Post giving the winner of the reader’s prize, (well this reader anyway), so lets see how close the official Jury got:
Let’ see then, my winner was … Joseph Incardona “La soustraction des possibles” (Éditions Finitude). This complex story, its construction, and the slightly sarcastic style combine to make this a most enjoyable book.
So How did the “Official Jury” do…….Well they chose:
Patrice Gain “Le Sourire du scorpion“(MOT ET LE RESTE). This uncomfortable story is based on the true life events of a genocidal criminal arrested in Lyon in 2011.
Well This was still a very good choice, it would have been my number 2 ……………………but who am I after all?….. Congrats to Patrice Gain.
