(Translated from the Norwegian by Tara F. Chace)

And if you like this one, the second in the series, Winter in Wonderland, is also on sale.


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.
