From the Guardian, the wonderfully named Camilla Läckberg gives her list of the ten best Swedish crime novels, including this one: Sun Storm by Åsa Larsson, which seems to be about a female tax attorney....
Congrats on the umlaut. You've ascended to the second level in the mystical society of bloggers.The implication that books written by Swedes cannot be seedy is suspect, however. That is your Europhilia speaking.
I take back what I said about the umlaut, as it appears you pasted it in rather coding it. For shame, sir.
Well, hey, is that fair? Kudos for the much harder "bolle-å" (Alt-0197)!
All copied and pasted, I'm afraid... Too busy with my dreams of a brilliant, beautiful, wry, Swedish tax attorney, who also solves crimes.Be still my heart.
A current ad for a re-issue of a Peter Handke novel promises "seedy noir atmosphere." For which German art novelists are of course world famous.Doesn't say that the central character "also solves crimes." Deal breaker for me.
Thanks for the nice chart, Generic. Just add Alt-0 to type them in Word.
