I've included three write-ins since I failed to pay close enough attention during the nomination process: Charlie Resnick from John Harvey, Elliot Steil from Jose Latour, and Hector Belascoran Shayne from Paco Ignacio Taibo. If Frank and Cora from The Postman Always Rings Twice are counted as one character, my extra vote would go to Alicia from Adios, Muchachos, by Daniel Chavarria.
