If Stieg Larsson’s megaselling Millennium Trilogy has whetted your appetite for Scandinavian sleuthing, try these nail-biters:
by Karin Fossum
A girl goes missing in a small Norwegian town, and thoughtful Inspector Sejer takes on the case. Astute and unnerving.
by Roslund & Hellstrom

by Henning Mankell
The first of Mankell’s superb Kurt Wallander mysteries centers on the murder of a couple in rural Sweden.
