French literary award
The Prix du Polar Européen (English: European Crime Fiction Prize) is a French literary prize awarded each year for the best crime or thriller novel by a European author in French or a French translation. The award was launched by the weekly magazine Le Point in 2003.
The jury is composed of police officers, publishing professionals and journalists. The prize was originally delivered to the winning author at the opening of the Nice Book Festival but, since 2007, it has been awarded at the Quais du Polar in Lyon.
