1) Crime-winning crime (UK Only)
This was nice and easy. There were three books and three entrants so everyone gets something.
The Salati Case goes to Dawn. Sassy Brit gets The Murder Farm and Maxine will receive a package containing The Bethlehem Murders. All three come with an Edinburgh Book Festival Bag.
2) Book of Your Choice
I took the simple approach to this. There were 93 comments on the post. Some weren’t entries but if the number fell on one of those, I would simply have asked random.org to generate another integer. As it turned out I didn’t need to.

If you read the blog regularly, you’ll know I have a very soft spot for German literature. So Carol I’m sending you a copy of Julia Franck’s The Blind Side of the Heart.
Congratulations, everyone! Please send address details to lizzysiddal (at) yahoo dot com and I’ll ship your books post haste! Do come back and let me know how you enjoy them.
