2011 Nordic Challenge

The 2011 Nordic Challenge is hosted by Zee at Notes from the North and runs from January 1 2011 to December 31 2011.

The Rules are simple. There is no need to make a list before hand. Any book by any author born in a Nordic country (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and/or Sweden) or a book set in a Nordic country.

They can be from any genre but I have restricted myself to crime fiction only.

There are 5 levels, and I decided to join in at the highest possible level, in a fit of insanity. Valhalla Level: Read 20+ books

My count so far:


Can’t believe I’m still on track.

Next from my TBR pile:

  • The Inspector and Silence by Hakan Nesser
  • Voices by Arnaldur Indridason
  • The Ice Princess by Camilla Läckberg
  • Nadie lo ha oído (Unspoken) by Mari Jungsted
  • Sangre derramada (The Blood Spilt) by Asa Larsson
  • Antes de que hiele (Before the Frost) By Henning Mankell
  • La Pirámide (The Pyramid) by Henning Mankell


From my Wish List:

  • Bad Intentions by Karin Fossum
  • Frozen Moment by Camille Ceder
  • Outrage by Arnaldur Indridason
  • The Quarry by Johan Theorin

  1. José Ignacio – You are doing very well with this challenge! I am impressed.

  2. You are very ambitious for this year, with all of these challenges. This is a big goal.
    Having read two by Nesbo, I’m planning on reading more this summer, as well as trying to obtain Indridasson’s newest translation, Outrage, as you mention; Mercy, by Jussi Adler-Olsen; more Nesser; Three Seconds, and, of course, another by Sjowall and Wahloo, although I space those out as I only have five left to read in their terrific series.
    Good luck on achieving the ambitious goal.
