    I agree with Gerbam, on John LeCarre, I think I have all his books, and remember he was a real spy. He knew what he was writing about. And George Simenone, I have a bot of his Maigrete mysteries. The Turn of the Screw in on my shelf also. But I should add Erle Stanley Gardner, and Rex Stout to the list.

    I have found some more 'cerebral' mystery writers in translation:
    Hakan Nesser
    Peter Hoeg
    Kirsten Ekman

    Well plotted suspense thrillers and good characterizations. Have not read too many books in the last months.
    What have you all been busy with?

    For me it is more important that the characters be dynamic. And of course a good plot as well.
