Babette’s Feast by Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen)

“In this witty classic short story Babette’s Feast, a mysterious French housekeeper, who is taken in by two Danish sisters, wins the lottery and as a gesture of gratitude prepares an extravagant and sumptuous feast for a gathering of religious, ascetic, aging villagers and, in doing so, introduces them to the true essence of charity and grace.”


Out of Africa by Karen Blixen

“In 1914 Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya with her husband to run a coffee farm. Instantly drawn to the land, she spent her happiest years there until the plantation failed. Karen Blixen was forced to return to Denmark and it was there in 1937 that she wrote this classic account of her experiences.”


Death Deserved (Alexander Blix Book 1) by Thomas Enger & Jørn Lier Horst (Translated from the Norwegian by Anne Bruce)

“Police officer Alexander Blix and celebrity blogger Emma Ramm join forces to track down a serial killer with a thirst for attention and high-profile murders, in the first episode of a gripping new Nordic Noir series.”

The Axe: The Master of Hestviken by Sigrid Undset
(Translated from the Norwegian)

Set in 13th-century Norway, The Axe is the first volume in Undset’s epic tetralogy, The Master of Hestviken.


American by Day by Derek B. Miller

“A gripping and timely novel that follows Sigrid—the dry-witted detective from Derek B. Miller’s best-selling debut Norwegian by Night—from Oslo to the United States on a quest to find her missing brother”


Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset
(Translated from the Norwegian by Tiina Nunnally)

Kristin Lavransdatter is a trilogy of historical novels written by Nobel laureate Sigrid Undset. The individual novels are The Wreath (first published in 1920), The Wife (published in 1921), and The Cross (published in 1922).

“In her great historical epic Kristin Lavransdatter, set in fourteenth-century Norway, Nobel laureate Sigrid Undset tells the life story of one passionate and headstrong woman. Painting a richly detailed backdrop, Undset immerses readers in the day-to-day life, social conventions, and political and religious undercurrents of the period. Now in one volume, Tiina Nunnally’s award-winning definitive translation brings this remarkable work to life with clarity and lyrical beauty.”


Dregs (William Wisting Mystery 1) by Jørn Lier Horst
(Translated from the Norwegian by Anne Bruce)

Jørn Lier Horst is my favorite Norwegian crime writer. His books are certainly more police procedurals than crime thrillers. Detective Wisting is a methodical and likeable investigator. His daughter Line, a journalist, often gets involved which adds a nice touch to the plot. This is the first Wisting book to be translated into English but actually the sixth book in the series.


The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund
(Translated from the Swedish by Neil Smith)

“It begins in a Stockholm city park where the abused body of a young boy is discovered. Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg heads the investigation, battling an apathetic prosecutor and a bureaucratic police force unwilling to devote resources to solving the murder of an immigrant child. But with the discovery of the mutilated corpses of two more children, it becomes clear that a serial killer is at large.” Read more.
