Leonardo Padura in The Guardian

Leonardo Padura, whose crime fiction is published in English by Bitter Lemon Press, lists his top ten Cuban novels in The Guardian on the occasion of the European publication of Havana Fever (which will come stateside in May.) Fever, set in 2003, revives detective Mario Conde, who has retired from the police force and is now an antiquarian bookseller, who ends up delving into the mystery of a jazz singer who disappeared back before the revolution. I'm very much looking forward to this one.
