There you have it. The results from Rounds 1 and 2, with their percentage break-downs. If you haven't voted yet, make sure you get your votes in for Round 3. And tell all your crime fiction fan friends to get their votes in as well. If you missed it yesterday, I announced a giveaway for a signed first addition of Ken Mercer's wonderful debut novel, SLOW FIRE. Make sure you get your entries submitted for that contest.

I have a number of reviews to catch up on, so hopefully I'll be getting those posted in the very near future. And tomorrow, barring anything bizarre happening, I'll be recapping Jo Nesbø at the Mystery Lovers Bookshop.

Happy Wednesday and Happy Reading!

Still scratching my head over the Jim Chee / Lincoln Rhyme vote.

@Naomi - I'm still smarting over Lincoln squishing my boy, Aloysius. So, even if I hadn't already been a fan of Jim Chee, he had my vote over Rhyme.

Thanks for the breakdown

Some fascinating numbers there. Interesting to see that Harry Bosch is being even more dominant than the likes of Sherlock Holmes, and absolutely crushing people. Will be interesting to see if that continues, considering he's in what I'd considered one of the tougher parts of the bracket...

The loss of Tess hurts, it hurts a lot.
