So Mysterious

Earlier this year I got an ARC for Missing by Karin Alvtegen which was sent to me by the mystery publisher, Felony & Mayhem. I think I first heard of this publisher via Bas Bleu books and remember adding lots of their mysteries to my wish list. I highly recommend checking both out and I’ll bet you add some books to your wish list too.

Of course I was excited to read the book because aside from enjoying mysteries, if they are in a foreign location even better. Missing is set in Sweden and although I didn’t find it as, say brooding, as other scandinavian mysteries I’ve read, it was still a good one. The main character is a homeless woman and it’s quite a different take from the typical amateur sleuth type mystery. You can read more of my thoughts here.

In keeping with the mystery theme I have a couple of mysteries that are lined up waiting for me and I’m anxious to read. There’s The Eye of Jade by Diane Wei Liang and another title from Felony & Mayhem, A Clubbable Woman by Reginald Hill.

I also finished Dope by Sara Gran recently. I am saving my comments on that one until I meet up with my book group. Let’s just say I liked her other novel Come Closer much more.

Just in case you were wondering, I am reading a new mystery now, and I can’t believe it took me so long to finally “discover” this author. I’m really enjoying A Great Deliverance by Elizabeth George. At least it’s great to know that I have a lot more books to look forward to in this series. Actually speaking of great series, I found out that Peter Robinson has a new book coming out soon. Friend of the Devil is 17th in the Inspector Banks series, which I love. I’m up to book 10, so I’m still behind but I like taking my time.
