Scandinavian Crime Fiction

Even though I’m a happy Dane (with a little Swedish mixed in), Scandinavians do have a dark side …

I was excited to find this site: Scandinavian Crime Fiction: Your Literary Portal into Northern Deviance

I’ve read a few of the books listed (The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen and all of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, i.e., The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest), plus a few that aren’t listed (yet) — The Boy in the Suitcase by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friise, Smila’s Sense of Snow by Peter Hoeg, and Unwanted by Kristina Ohlsson.

Another rich find was this Scandinavian Crime Fiction blog.

These sites will help feed my reading habit for a long time to come.  If you’re a fan of Scandinavian crime fiction like me, or a wannabe, check them out!
