  4. Nesser is on the long list of Scandinavian crime writers I have not read. Despite the fact that the list of Scandinavians I have read is pretty long. hunt dot ben at gmail dot com

  6. Hi Keith

    This really is a brilliant competition. I think when a new book is out in a series, readers are always keen to ctach up with the previous titles, so this is totally ace. And what better blog to host such a competition on. Here’s my entry, please, yes please, pretty please!
