'The announcement of the Daggers Awards is always an exciting moment in the CWA's calendar,' said CWA chair Alison Joseph. 'For months our judges have been reading all the entries, in all the categories, and once again their shortlists show their care, discernment and thoughtfulness. The awards dinner is the culmination of all their hard work. It is an opportunity to celebrate the best of our genre, to award our most talented authors and, most important of all, to introduce our ever-growing readership to more books they will enjoy.'
The awards are:
CWA International Dagger: Ghost Riders of Ordebec, Fred Vargas translated by Sian Reynolds, and Alex by Pierre Lemaitre translated by Frank Wynne. This is the first time the International Dagger has been shared.
CWA Non-Fiction Dagger: Midnight in Peking, Paul French

CWA Short Story Dagger: Come Away With Me, Stella Duffy
CWA Ellis Peters Historical Dagger: The Scent of Death, Andrew Taylor
