it happens . . . where?

Steph of WhereDunnit investigates the curious case of the undefined location where Håkan Nesser’s Van Veeteren series are set, reviewing Mind’s Eye, the first in the series (naturally published out of order, as seems to be the custom). She does suggest some possible Swedish influences and provides some fascinating information – in 2006 Nesser created a new series featuring “Gunnar Barbarotti, a Swedish police inspector of Italian descent, and this time, although he has created another fictional city – Kymlinge – the location is firmly in Sweden.”
