Sunday Morning Acquisition


About the author: Carin Gerhardsen, author of the Hammarby-series, five crime novels that take place in the southern parts of Stockholm. Originally a mathematician, Carin Gerhardsen has become one of Sweden’s most highly praised crime authors, considered “Sweden’s number one female crime author”, by Bokhora, the most popular book blog in Sweden. Lot of the scenes depicted are self-experienced, based on episodes from Gerhardsen’s own childhood.

I’ve just downloaded The Gingerbread House by Carin Gerhardsen, .the first in the Hammarby series of Swedish thrillers (available June 5, 2012) at € 3.94 (Kindle edition). Stockholm Text Publishing

The Gingerbread House has been reviewed by Maxine at Petrona and Simon Clarke at Amazon.uk, among others. See also Scandinavian Crime Fiction: Barbara Fister’s post on Stockholm Text titles.

It’s available in Spanish, Planeta (2011) translated by Mayte Giménez and Pontus Sánchez, under the title: La casita de jenjibre.

  1. I hope you enjoy it, Jose Ignacio. If any of the other titles are in Spanish, you may be able to get one of them free from the publisher – I emailed her my amazon receipt for this one and she sent me one of the others (though I then had to install Calibre to convert it into a format I could upload to the kindle). Barbara’s post to which you refer has the email address of the publisher, I think.
