Criminal Plots Reading Challenge

As I'm already committed to the Femme Fatale reading challenge, I figured why not take this one on as well?  It's not exactly the same -- and there are a few sub-challenges to keep things interesting! Plus, the sub-challenges so intrigued my wife, she's going to do the challenge along with me!

Criminal Plots Reading Challenge.

Here are the rules:

Read six books throughout 2011. One book should be read that fits into each of the following categories:
  • A book by a new to you author who's blurbed a book you enjoyed. So check out the cover of a crime fiction book you've enjoyed and see who blurbed that book and is also an author you've never read before. 
  • A book that has been made into a movie. It doesn't have to be a movie you've seen but it can be. The book, however, should be one you haven't read before. 
  • A book with a protagonist opposite your own gender. So if you're female, the protagonist should be male; if you're male the protagonist should be female.
    • A book set outside the country in which you live. 
    • A book that's the first in a new-to-you series.
      •  READ: Carte Blanche by Carlo Lucarelli
    • A book by a 2011 debut author.

      I'm so very, very excited about the possibilities!  I don't really have any firm ideas, although for #5, I'm thinking the first book in Philip Kerr's Bernard Gunther series, March Violets.  Any thoughts on that, or any of the other possibilities?  I would especially love any help with #6!
