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.

The Indian Bride by Karin Fossum

When perpetual bachelor Gunder Jomann goes to India for two weeks and comes home married, the town of Elvestad is stunned. On the day the Indian bride is supposed to arrive, the battered body of a woman is found in a meadow on the outskirts of town. None of the "good people of Elvestad" can believe that anyone among them would be capable of such a brutal murder. But in his quiet, formal way, Inspector Konrad Sejer understands that good people can commit atrocious deeds, and that no one is altogether innocent—including the café owner who knows too much, the girl who wants to be a chief witness, and the bodybuilder with no outlet for his terrible strength.
