The Irish Book Awards have been running for a number of years now, but it is only in the last five years that there has been a category for Best Irish Crime Book of the Year. This has been sponsored each year by Ireland AM TV 3, and seeing as how The Doll’s House won this year’s award, I did my research into previous winners. As Keelan Shanley said at this year’s award ceremony, ‘before there was Love/Hate, there was Emerald Noir, and judging by the history of the award to date, Irish Crime Fiction is in a very healthy place.
