I feel that series is pretty overlooked in NA, I enjoyed both the Swedish and UK TV adaptions but never got into the books.Working through the last few books of Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander series. I started reading them because there was a bookstore across from where I worked in Latvia and it had one wall dedicated to English language books, so I used to write down ones that interested me. The second Wallander book, The Dogs of Rīga, takes place right in the capital - so I built upon the series listing from there, read through a couple over the years and decided to finish it out this year. I’ve got three left and the author is dead - so a finite list. Lovely Northern European mysteries. I highly recommend this and Martin Cruz Smith’s Arkady Renko series.
Yikes, I've been delinquent on the Forums already :\I feel that series is pretty overlooked in NA, I enjoyed both the Swedish and UK TV adaptions but never got into the books.
What were you doing in Latvia? I grew up with a ton of Latvians in Vancouver.
