I would not seem so much like a grumpy old man if booksellers did not do things that would annoy most sane people.
The book of course did not feature Kurt Wallander, or Kenneth Branagh, and a good part of the story wasn't even set in Sweden.
" The new Stieg Larsson: Simon Robertson Waterstone's crime buyer".
Mr Robertson surely a writer who has won:
The CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger 2009 and the Best Swedish Crime Fiction Debut 2007 [Basta svenska debut] for Echoes From The Dead, The Nordic Glass Key 2009 and Best Swedish Crime Novel 2008 [Basta svenska kriminalroman] for The Darkest Room, a book which has also been shortlisted for this year's International Dagger can be marketed on his own merits.
Both books have been translated by Marlaine Delargy, who also translates Asa Larsson.
What do Stieg Larsson's books and Johan Theorin's books have in common, beyond the fact that the two authors are Swedes? Their protagonists perhaps?
Gerlof Davidsson and Lisbeth Salander? Now there is a partnership to dream about.
