These sound wonderful! I love crime novels, but it's so difficult to choose because I often find that the most popular ones are not the most enjoyable. I've just started with Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie books and am determined not to start another series right now, but I will keep these in mind for when I'm caught up with Atkinson and wanting a crime fiction fix.

I've never read any Reginald Hill - sounds like I should give him a go, and the ones I'm drawn to from your selection above.

I've just finished my first Magdalen Nabb Florentine mystery (post tomorrow)- very different to the other Italian detective novels I've read.

Teresa - Knowing a bit about your tastes I am sure you will like the Reginald Hill series when you're looking for something new.

Annabel - Reginald Hill is not quite like any other crime writer I've come across. There is a real sense of development between books whilst keep a convincing contiuity of character. His clue laying is fascinating. I've not read any Magdalen Nabb Florentine and I shall hot foot it to Gaskella to read your review now.
