European crime fiction in the crosshairs
n°2 July-August-September 2005


e d i t o

With the coming holidays, europolar heads for the sun and offers you some enlightened reading. Summer isn't summer without a pile of books and our critics' suggestions will guide you through some uncharted territory.

10 years after his death, we pay hommage to Jean-Patrick Manchette - with the help of some of those who knew him, as well as those who have always loved and defended the author of Three Men to Kill. Your chance to read or reread one of the pioneers of the neo-polar.

Finally, what do authors do on holiday? Do they take a break or go away with a pen and notebook? Also are holidays similar in the European crime fiction universe? Europolar reports on the summer break.
