Six Scandinavian thrillers to see you through the winter – Now. Here. This. – Time Out London

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Thanks to Stieg Larsson’s best selling trilogy, Scandinavian thrillers are now more popular than they have ever been and they are perfect for these brutal winter months. Here are six to get your teeth into, as recommended by Barry Forshaw, author of ‘Death in a Cold Climate: A Guide to Scandinavian Crime Fiction’.

‘Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow’ Peter Høeg, 1992
The literary crime novel that led the Scandinavian invasion mesmerises with its evocative use of Copenhagen locales and weather, so significant for the troubled, intuitive heroine.

‘The Laughing Policeman’ Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö , 1968

Sjöwall and Wahlöö are celebrated as the very best exponents of the police procedural, and Martin Beck the ultimate Scandinavian copper.

‘Firewall’ Henning Mankell, 1998

Kurt Wallander, overweight, diabetes-ridden and with all the problems of modern society leaving scars on his soul, in an unvarnished portrait of modern life.

‘The Redbreast’ Jo Nesbø, 2000
More quirky and individual than most of his Scandinavian colleagues – not least thanks to his wonderfully dyspeptic
detective Harry Hole (pronounced ‘Hurler’) Jo Nesbø’s ‘The Redbreast’ bristles with a scarifying vision of Nordic fascism.

‘Woman with Birthmark’, Håkan Nesser, 1996
Håkan Nesser makes most crime fare seem rather thin gruel. His copper, Van Veeteren, has been lauded by Colin
Dexter as ‘destined for a place among the great European detectives’.

‘Jar City’ Arnaldur Indriðason, 2000
The talented Indri ason is making a mark with his Reykjavik-set thrillers. His debut, ‘Jar City’ is his calling card. When
the body of an old man is found in his apartment, DI Erlendur discovers that he had been accused of rape in the past.

Dear lizzielil2012,
Wow. You are really an uplifting person. I have an idea for you to think of and maybe do.
You got a good way of writing and expressing yourself, and this could be do to the gift the many students have given you in speaking and communicating with you for the twenty plus years. What I like about your attitude is it is positive and not negative. You tend to inspire with your words so...
I think the thing you may wish to persue is to write simple booka that reflect a sort of realistic fiction of some of the things you experienced as a teacher with students in the age range of say middle school through sixth grade
