Dagger in the Library nominations

Nominations for the 2024 Dagger in the Library are now closed. 

The Dagger in the Library is awarded to a UK crime writer every year. This year the names of nominated authors have been supplied by libraries and borrowers nationwide.

Each library in Britain or the Republic of Ireland has three votes and any person working there can vote – staff or volunteer.
