Iceland Noir: Congratulations Ann Cleeves

Ann Cleeves wins Iceland Noir's first honorary award for services to crime fictionLast night at Reykjavik’s grand Hotel Borg, Ann Cleeves was announced the winner of Iceland Noir’s first ever Honorary Award for Services to the Art of Crime Fiction.

The author of both the Vera series, set in North East England, and the Shetland books, with the Shetland Islands as their backdrops, was handed both the award and an authentic Icelandic wool blanket. She has been instrumental in helping the bi-annual event establish itself. She’s also an advocate for reading and library provision, while in her books she explores families and communities and how they’re affected by dramatic events… such as murder.

Congratulations, Ann! You can more about Ann’s appearances at Iceland Noir 2016 here and here.
