You have probably heard of Stieg Larson (The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo Millennium Trilogy
and Jo Nesbo ( The Harry Hole Series ) but how about some of the others? Well some of the best mystery writers of today are from the Scandinavian countries:
Jussi Adler-Olsen, THE MARCO EFFECT
This book is the 5th in a series called Dept. Q. I’ve read the other 4 and can highly recommend all of them. Why?
If you enjoy watching the development of characters over several books this series is a winner! And just when you think the story lines and characters are all studied out, new ones appear and you know you’ll find more details in later books.
I love PAPER BOOKS (enjoy e-books too, BUT) I’ve bought all of these books in hard back because I don’t want to wait to get into the latest book as soon as it is released.
I’ve read many of the mystery writers from the USA and there are a lot of them to choose from. When Stieg Larsson came out with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series of course the whole world read them and then watched the movies. He actually died before the books were published and therefore it was thought that there would be no more about “that girl”, but just wait, Stieg’s girl friend helped him with the books and knows what the Book 4 should be……..SOooooooooo maybe one day we’ll get that book.
In the meantime, give this author a try! All of his books are “page turners”!!!! You really care about what will happen in the ending and can hardly wait to get there and then you’re biting at the bit to get your hands on the next one!
Yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
