Mario, Thanks for your interest. French translation? Not much in fact. For the moment there are one or two French translations of novels by Natsuo Kirino, but more of the suspense type than really noir. I did not find any other Japanese author named in the article having books recently translated into French.

Japanese mysteries translated in France are most of the time of the mainstream type, mainly whodunits. I think it's the same with the American market for the time being.
