So I was sitting down trying to think of recommendations to post for you and then *lightbulb* I really miss Nordic Noir, I haven’t been ready many books in this genre since exploring fantasy / Sci-fi and Ya. I know that not many people are fans of translated fiction, however it’s one of my favourite genres and I think it’s definitely underrated!
Here are some that I love…
Blood on Snow Series by Jo Nesbo
I decided to read this duology as I have heard loads of great things about Jo Nesbo but the Harry Hole series has so many books that being honest I’m a little intimidated to start it.
I definitely recommend starting here.
Holger Munch & Mia Kruger Series by Samuel Bjørk
If you want to explore Nordic Noir but you don’t know if it’s for you then I definitely recommend checking this series out, it’s easy to read and the cases are always so interesting!
I love our main duo, they are completely opposite personalities but it really works!
Joona Linna Series by Lars Kepler
Let’s be honest this is my most talked about series on my blog! I can’t recommend this enough, just please read it!!!
Victoria Bergmans svaghet #1-3 by Erik Axl Sund
This may seem a little confusing as I’ve only put the one book here, however, when it was translated to English they put the trilogy into one book which does make it about 800 pages long but it really is worth it.
Now a quick note, I’d say that this is for more experienced readers of the genre as it definitely isn’t for the faint-hearted! It can be pretty graphic and if I remember correctly there are mentions of child abuse.
