The Barry Award is a crime literary prize awarded annually since 1997 by the editors of Deadly Pleasures, an American quarterly publication for crime fiction readers. From 2007-2009 the award was jointly presented with the publication Mystery News. The prize is named after Barry Gardner, an American critic.[1]

Note that the "best British crime novel" in this context is best crime fiction novel first published in English in the United Kingdom and does not reflect the author's nationality.
