I became more interested in this part of the world after reading the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series of books and since then I love all of the different authors I have read from this part of the world. I love reading Nordic mysteries in winter as I can more easily identify with the setting.
In compiling my too long To Be Read list for 2012 for Good Reads I have many authors I plan on reading from this part of the world in the winter months. (Click on Good Reads link in red if you would like to read about each book and see my books I want to read for 2012).
I recently read Snow Angels by James Thompson which was set in Finland and liked it very much for the dark characters which so reflect the Nordic Culture and for the excellent descriptions of the setting. I plan on going to the library in about a week and plan on checking out The Snowman by Jo Nesbo and The Cruel Stars at Night by Kjell Ericksson.
I also have found two Scandi blogs one on Scandi food and one general interest. Here are the links:
I also would like to ask that if you pray could you say a silent prayer for my husband and I . He went for a job interview today for a job he likes and is qualified for after no luck for 4 months and I have a really big test for work in a week. I would certainly appreciate any good thoughts and prayers you could send my way.
I thank each of you who left comments on the last post. You encouragement and words mean so much to me.
