Crime Fiction in Translation Dagger 2018


Pierre Lemaître

tr. Frank Wynne

Three Days and a Life

Published by: MacLehose

A crime novel set in petty bourgeois provincial France, focused on one character with the repercussions of a violent accident blighting a boy’s adult life and career. Lemaître keeps the suspense high and the reader empathetic. Frank Wynne’s excellent translation never calls attention to itself.
