Best crime fiction reads 2011 - authors with multiple mentions

I have been collecting lists of best crime fiction reads for 2011 for a couple of weeks now. You will see the majority of the links in my post here but they also came in as comments on posts and by emails. In the long run there were 35 contributors and 364 titles.

Note that they are a mixture of mysteries and thrillers, and also include titles that have been published pre-2011: some in fact would qualify as vintage publications.

Two days ago I listed the titles that were mentioned more than once, and yesterday the remainder of the titles.

One of the interesting features of creating these lists is always to see which authors get more than one mention, that is, more than one title.
There were 27 altogether and I have listed them in alphabetical order, together with the titles that were listed.
Tomorrow I will list all the authors.

Nice to see so many translated authors in this list. Thanks for putting it together, Kerrie.

A splendid list, and you have reminded me I that I must have the next Elly Griffiths. But my (latest) TBR resolution is to read at least three 2011-books before I buy a new one.
