    1. Bound to happen, I found a new author who I really liked Veronica von Schenck was one in a anthology of crime writers She hit my weakness and wrote with the fascination of history, artifacts, and solving problems But what I like the best about her was that she quit her job I also liked Anna Jansson and the story with Detective Captain Maria Wern and Stieg Larsson s tale of the athlete and his body All the stories were excellent.

    2. Finding a book by Swedish detective authors in my hometown library which, in fact, is the size of any kindergarten library I call a success Understanding that I should have read the book in Swedish to really get everything from it is not so overwhelming Don t get me wrong the translation was good, even better than good, but still what is the point of knowing a language if I read in my mother tongue Aside from the guilt I felt over reading in Lithuanian, the book was fun A lot of short stories we [...]

An anthology of Swedish writers that brings you gems from the established greats and wellknown translated authors but also shows less familiar and interesting ones who would have a great deal to offer if their work was widely available in English.I really enjoyed sa Larsson s The Mail Run and Johan Theorin s Revenge of the Virgin But the quality of this book is the background information on the writers and their work So the biography and short stories from Veronica von Schenck and Katarina Wenns [...]

    8. Some of the stories in this collection are awesome some too dark and gristly for my taste We listened to the audio version on two road trips 13 hours of listening, about one of which was a fascinating, though Very Long introduction that had the feel of a dissertation about it But still, we both liked the collection, overall, and got to take tastes of authors we had yet to find on our own Plus there were some of the old standbys that were fun to find again.

    24. A collection of crime thriller short stories from Sweden The selection of stories includes popular Swedish authors including Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell What surprised me the most was just how modern all these stories are Few are from before the time of the Millennium Trilogy, most from the last 5 years or so Apart from Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo, seemingly none before the 90s It is also interesting that most of the authors seem to have been some sort of journalist, and all seem to have ea [...]

This antology presents a lot of amazing swedish authors Thanks to that I really fell in love with swedish crime novels, especially Lars Kepler even the book doesn t present any of their work I think reading this book is a good way to getting know the different styles of writing of different authors and that makes the reader choose which one they would like to try Some of the stories are not that dark but some i think the first two or three are written in a really mysterious way i really felt mys [...]

I just happened to come across this one day while I was browsing the new mysteries shelf at the library I am a huge fan of Scandanavian crime fiction and this book turns out to be newly translated short stories by the greats of the genre The book is worth checking out just for the indroduction by Holmberg in which he discusses and analyzes the works of 20 Swedish crime writers from Sjowall Wahloo to the current crop of best selling authors like Mankell, Nesser and Larsson The other thing is that [...]
