Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow
Snow Falling on Cedars American but also really scandanavian feel to it.

thought Miss Smilla ended very disappointingly
but agree about Snow Falling - lovely book - much more than just a detective/mystery book (and not scandic)
Tenderness of Wolves is another readable mystery with lots of snow (set in north america) as is the brilliant Simple Plan by Scott Smith

There are many fantastic Swedish crime writers. From my own little corner of the world (Gotland, Sweden), I can recommend the Mari Jungsted series, specially the Inner Circle.

You might also want to check out my own murder mystery Drawn in Blood (Rick Stone), set in Swedish colonized Mora, MN. It's on a free Happy Midsummer campaign this June 23-24.

Hi Gwyneth,

I really enjoy Mari Jungsted, I wrote a review for her first three books, it might help you make a decision.

The Inner Circle is my favorite, btw.

Happy reading!

Helene Tursten is good but you cannot compare her books to Mankell or Nesbo as she is quieter without the gruesome aspects with more character development. Also there is her family and how they interact with her job. I enjoyed her books.
Mari Jungsted is excellent more like the traditional nordic crime.
My current favourite Is Camilla Lackberg I am just reading The Drowning, but the series starts with the Ice Princess. The Hidden Child made me cry it was superb.
Varg Veum is good I have seen some DVDs of the character.
Hakan Nesser is good too, I have read all of his it starts with Borkmanns Point. However I guessed who done it about 1/3 of the way through, but I am an avid crime-bookphile and I can usually work it out.
Per Wahloo/Maj Stowell are fantastic I think that Martin Beck is great. There are ten I have read them all. They are a bit dated as they were written in the 60/70s no mobiles, computers etc but well written and the perfect police procedural. They are funny and well written. There is along with Beck's department, a comic dopey duo of regular car cops who usually mess stuff up but in one book catch the criminals by mistake. Roseanna is the first book in the ten.
I have just read Winter Sacrifice and Summertime Death by Mons Kallentoft. I have ordered the Autumn book which is released later in the year.

Hi Camilla Lackberg is also one of my favourites, waiting for The Drowning from my local library, after reading we will be discussing it among a very small circle of friends, hope it is as good as her others, always on the lookout for different writers and shall be trying some of your,s, Martin Beck will be first then Per Wahloo/Maj Stowell will be next.

Kjell Erikson is popular although not one of my favourites. He lust has a new book out. I am currently reading ( struggling )with Princess of Burundi. I am not sure that I will try the new one?
