You should try Johan Theorin - he's really good. Email me if you'd like books to review, great blog!

Lynsey do a search for Johan Theorin on Crime Scraps and you will discover I am a big fan. ;o)

Nice job. You are now at EXTREME level of the SRC.

So, what is your feeling overall, besides immense pride and intricate knowledge of criminal activities? LOL

Actually, I'd love to know if anyone found fiction from the Faroe Islands...that would be unique!

Congrats and please remember to contact me in Dec when I figure out prizes...

Thanks Amy.
Some of the Scandinavian books I have read lately have been so very dark and bleak that I have moved on to read a British book. Sex and murder, lots of both. ;o)

Congrats on your extra reading for the Scandinavian Book Challenge.

Your review of "Woman from Bratislava," is extremely interesting. It sounds like an entire semester of education on Denmark and WWII, and also the Balkans.

I also did not know about the history as you outlined is covered in the book.

I have wanted to read that book but can't find a copy from my public library, Book Depository, etc.

I had finished the challenge but have several more Nordics on my to-be-read list, which I hope to complete: Roseanna, by Sjowall/Wahloo, Mind's Eye by Nesser and The Redbreast by Nesbo.

I was on a roll but then wanted to complete my informal global challenge and moved on to read Thirteen Hours by Deon Meyers.

And now I'm hooked, looking for a few more of his books. So it may be awhile before I return to the colder climates.

Thanks for your reviews.

Those are three great Scandinavian books Kathy, but I agree Thirteen Hours was excellent.
Deon Meyer is going to be at Crime Fest next year so I am also trying to get to read some more of his books.

My dilemma is which of Meyer's to read next and which can I get the fastest. I've seen Petrona's and Reactions to Reading's reviews of some of his books which will help me to decide.

So I now have substituted a South African Challenge and also am so motivated by Meyer, that I also want to read "A Carrion Death," by Michael Stanley, and books by Malla Nunn and Margie Orford.

Can't wait to see what this website puts up next as well.
