Outside North America

Murder Mysteries

 My interest in authors from Sweden, Norway and soon Iceland started after watching a British version of Wallander
The series is based on a fictional character created by Swedish author, Henning Mankell.

This led me to The Hypnotist written by the duo writing under the name Lars Kepler.
The film based on this book is expected to be released later this year.

Later, I discovered Karin Fossum, a Norwegian author of crime fiction.
Her Konrad Sejer series was translated into 25 languages and won several awards.
I read the English translations by author Charlotte Barslund.

Next I am reading Jar City by Arnaldur Indridason .
I've already seen a trailer based on this book.
The inspector Erlendur series looks promising.
