Crime Fiction Pick of the Month August 2012 - a meme

Crime Fiction 2012
Many crime fiction bloggers write a summary post at the end of each month listing what they've read, and some, like me, even go as far as naming their pick of the month.

This meme is an attempt to aggregate those summary posts.
It is an invitation to you to write your own summary post for August 2012, identify your crime fiction best read of the month, and add your post's URL to the Mr Linky below.
If Mr Linky does not appear for you, leave the URL in a comment and I will add it myself.

You can list all the books you've read in the past month on your post, even if some of them are not crime fiction, but I'd like you to nominate your crime fiction pick of the month.

That will be what you will list in Mr Linky too -
ROSEANNA, Maj Sjowall & Per Wahloo - MiP (or Kerrie)

You are welcome to use the image on your post and it would be great if you could link your post back to this post on MYSTERIES in PARADISE.

Without looking at my lists, hands down, I say Anne Holt's Blind Goddess.

Reading this book aggravated me as I thought of all of the awful books now on the best-sellers' lists, and on bookstore display tables and prominently shown in my library branch.

Is quality crime fiction -- and all fiction -- too much to ask for these days?

Anne Holt's book is an example of good writing, thought-provoking with character development, social issues, smart, interesting, etc.

This is a real classic, written in 1926, but stands up well if you accept the conventions. Always a lot going on in a Dorothy L Sayers book! I re-read it to feature it on my blog.

Ooops, I may have linked twice - because the first time I linked it to my June reading picks instead of my latest one. I do apologise! I love reading what other people have to say about their top picks - this is such a brilliant idea, to aggregate our picks.
