2003 Dashiell Hammett Awards

This is awarded by the North American Branch of the International Association of Crime Writers, for a work of literary excellence (fiction or non-fiction) in the field of crime writing, by a US or Canadian author. The winner does not have to be hardboiled or a detective novel. The winning title is selected by a reading committee of IACW/NA, based on recommendations from other members and the publishing community, and the winner is chosen by three distinguished outside judges. The award is a bronze trophy, designed by West Coast sculptor, Peter Boiger, whose falcon-headed thin man symbolizes Dashielll Hammett's literary spirit.

The 2003 Hammett Prize (for novels published in 2002) was presented at the Mid Atlantic Mystery conference in Ottawa, Canada, on June 14 during the Bloody Words Converence.
