Swedish authors

It occurred to me that I’ve read quite a few books in the last year or so either in English or French that have been written by Swedish authors. First, Stieg Larsson and the Millennium Trilogy, then Camilla Läckberg and a number of books beginning with the Ice Princess and most recently I have come across Åke Edwardson and his Detective Winter series, link to his fan site here since his own site shows a blank page. I have enjoyed them al but must admit I’m getting a little tired of the ‘domestic overhead’ in Camilla Lackberg books, to the point where the plot gets lost in the mundane background stuff. Stieg Larsson has just the three books and since he died in 2004 that’s it. I’m over half way though my first Åke Edwardson book (in french translation) and look forward to reading more.
