Nesrin L. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is scandinavian not british...

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer is german...


message 4: by Lisa (last edited May 09, 2016 01:26PM) (new)

Lisa I love The Great Gatsby but it's not a British mystery by a British author. Isn't this the Great American Novel, or at least one of them? Also, Angela's Ashes is an Irish memoir, not a mystery/crime novel.


message 3: by Lexie (new)

Lexie Conyngham Can lists be pruned? This one has become seriously confused!


message 2: by Jane (new)

Jane Jackson This list is playing it a bit fast and loose with the "British" descriptor. And actually, a good chunk of these aren't mysteries either.


message 1: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Yeah stieg Larsson is swedish wtf

Anyone can add books to this list.
