Tidenes 100 beste kriminalromaner ifølge Crime Writers' Association

Tidenes 100 beste kriminalromaner var en litterær kåring i regi av den britiske forfatterorganisasjonen Crime Writers' Association (CWA). Kåringen ble presentert i bokform i 1990.[1]

En tilsvarende liste ble fem år senere laget av den amerikanske søsterorganisasjonen Mystery Writers of America (MWA).[2]
