I acknowledge the number of past Polish winners but I sense this years award could go to Olga Tokarczuk.

Having read all her (English) translated works to date and particularly impressed with Flights (and understand Books of Jacob may be at another level), she is my number one favourite for this year.

Interestingly, she (with her translator) late last year won the inaugural Kulturhuset Stadsteatern International Literary Award in Stockholm for the translation of The Books of Jakob into Swedish. The jury included some of the leading Swedish commentators on the Nobel prize and I will be interested in what they have to say about Nobel speculations this year.
