So, I started watching The Bridge / Broen, a Danish/Swedish crime drama. It’s my new favourite show! I’m pleasantly surprised because I tried to get into The Killing but gave up on it quite quickly.
Scandinavian crime fiction should be my dream genre as it involves grisly murders in grim Nordic places, but aside from the Icelandic authors, I’ve yet to really get into any of the other authors whose books I see everywhere. I’ve picked up a few of these books and flipped through them, but never found one that compelled me to buy it. But, I really do want to discover some new authors and I’d like to give these books a try again.
Please give me your recommendations for which of the current popular authors you like best – Nesbo, Mankell, Lackberg, Larsson, others? – and what it is you like about them. I know reading taste is individual but I also know some of you are big fans of this genre and I would love to know your opinions. You may just help me to find a new favourite author!
