Re: RARA-AVIS: Best books since 2000?

I think you have to include David Peace and his Red Riding Quartet (1974
- 1977 -1980 -1983 ). These 4 books form one of the best noir writing of these recent years.

Also, a talented Mexican writer who was translated into English, I think: Rolo Diez, mainly for his recent series with his atypical cop Carlos Hernandez (maybe you have it in Finnish?). Irony and corruption in very interesting HB/noir novels ("La vida que me doy", and other novels).

I personally would include Kem Nunn, as he produce so little but always of high value. A new novel was published recently.

Hope this helps.

>I'm starting an article (with interviews of at least JT Lindroos, Tapani, Dave Z. and Charles Ardai and perhaps Domenic Stansberry) about the new hardboiled/noir revival. I'd like you to nominate the best novels in the genre since the year 2000. There have been many new writers and new publishers etc. and the activity is still on the rise. Who are the essential authors and what are the essential books?
