  1. May I suggest these current best selling books:

    Jo Nesbo/”The Thirst” Harry Hole series (excellent)

    Sara Blaedel/ “The Killing Forest”/”Running Girl”/”The Undertaker’s Daughter”

    Jussi Adler-Olsen/”The Scarred Woman” Department Q series – excellant!

    Ruth Ware/”The Lying Game”/”The Death of Mrs. Hathaway”

    Camilla Lackberg/”The Girl in the Woods”

    I have ready the majority of these books. A few of them are on my bookshelf to read but I have read all their previous books and highly recommend them.

    1. Thanks for your comment. I very much like Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole series, and have read most of them. I do have The Thirst on my Kindle and I’ll definitely read it some time soon. Other authors on you list don’t tempt me that much, Just a matter of taste. Problem is there’re too many books but too little time to read them. Anyway thanks for your gentle suggestion.
