Derek B Miller Shorlisted for CWA Dagger Award

4th September 2013

Norwegian by Night, published this week in paperback, has not only been picked as the first title in Waterstones Autumn Book Club, but has been nominated to join Malkom Mackay, Hanna Jameson and Thomas Mogford on the shortlist for this year’s CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger Award.The Judges said:

“Tension, humour and tragedy are combined in this beautifully-written contribution to Nordic noir with a twist from an English-speaking author. With a central character who is original, wonderfully humane and convincing, this debut novel cleverly avoids many the genre’s clichés and pitfalls and emerges triumphant as a fully-dimensional gem.”

Norwegian by Night has also recently been reviewed by Chris White as part of the Radio 2 Arts Show Summer Season:

“The standard of writing soars above that of most debuts, and makes this one of the most enjoyable books of the year.”
