I’ve finally make up my mind, but I’ve failed to choose one book/author for each Scandinavian country. And the reason is that I’ve remember two new to me authors that I was very eager to read since quite some time ago. I’m also very grateful for all the recommendations I’ve received which will be included in my wish list.
Therefore to participate in the 2010 Scandinavian Reading Challenge I’m plannig to read:
- The Fire Engine That Disappeared by Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. Read
- Sun Storm (aka The Savage Altar) by Asa Larsson. TBR.
- Silence of the Grave by Arnaldur Indriðason. TBR.
- Nemesis by Jo Nesbø. TBR.
- The Mind’s Eye by Håkan Nesser. TBR.
- Missing by Karin Alvtegen. TBR.
Four of my favourite writers: Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö, Jo Nesbø and Arnaldur Indriðason. And three new to me: Asa Larsson, Håkan Nesser and Karin Alvtegen.
Thank you Amy for having set this one up.

>Jose Ignacio – It looks as though you've chosen some very good titles! I'll be interested to see what you think of them.
>Oh, Jose, you have some great reading in store! I am looking forward to finding out what you make of these books. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! Do you read them in Spanish, English or Swedish/Icelandic/Norwegian? 😉
>Margot – Thanks for your comment.Maxine – I have Nesbo Nesser and Alvtegen in English, the rest in Spanish.
>Jose, if you like Sjowall and Wahloo I think you will like Hakan Nesser, and Nemesis is a superb read. I am enjoying The Snowman at the moment about 100 pages and wonder what surprises Jo Nesbo has up his sleeve.I also have Missing on my TBR pile but Karin Alvtegen's Shadow and Betrayal were very very good.
>Oh, Margot and Maxine stole my line! Enjoy!
