Counting more than 100,000 votes, NPR Books has assembled a list of Killer Thrillers, readers’ picks for the top 100 thrillers of all time.

Surprisingly, recent bestsellers like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown were topped by a serial killer classic. The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris took first place on the thriller list.

Here’s more from the site: “Who is the NPR audience’s favorite thriller writer? It’s the King, of course — Stephen King, who landed six titles in the top 100. Lee Child comes next, with four winning books. And, at three titles each, Michael Crichton, Dennis Lehane and Stieg Larsson tie for third.”
