Colombian novelist Juan Gabriel Vásquez has won the €100,000 Impac award for his exploration of Colombia's drug trade, The Sound of Things Falling.
One of the world's richest literary prizes, the International Impac Dublin literary award this year pitted debut novels against big literary names.
Vásquez's third novel, a book which had already won him Spain's Alfaguara prize was described by judges as a "consummate literary thriller that resonates long after the final page."
