Two Swedish authors get the nod at Eurocrime. Maxine Clarke (aka Petrona) has good things to say about HeleneTursten’s The Glass Devil, saying it lives up to the high bar set by the previous two novels in the series.
Both she and Norman Price have had their socks blown off by first-time novelist Johan Theorin’s Echoes from the Dead, set on the Baltic island of Oland. She says “I can only advise that if you read one crime-fiction novel published this year, make it this one.”
Guess what’s just gone on my “must read” list? (Full disclosure: I’ve already read The Glass Devil.)
