OT: Adult Book Recommendation

I know there are many Henning Mankell fans in the kidslitosphere.

So, as a public service announcement, I highly recommend Asa Larsson's Sun Storm. For an atmospheric Swedish mystery, Sun Storm can't be beat. Ice, snow, eccentrics, religious extremism, and a top-notch accidental detective (she's a lawyer by day) make Sun Storm a compelling read. Don't miss it if you're a Swedish mystery fan!

Sun Storm was the winner of Sweden's Best First Crime Novel Award.
