Fall 2020: Crime Beneath the Midnight Sun
Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo were the first Scandinavian mystery authors to be popular in the United States; we read their book The Laughing Policeman (1970) as part of our mystery “Grand Tour” in 2014. Peter Hoeg’s Smila’s Sense of Snow was widely acclaimed in 1992, and some of us got to know Henning Mankell through the TV series, “Wallander.” But it was the amazing success of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2008) that led to the great demand for Scandinavian mysteries.
