Regular readers of this blog will know I’m a big fan of translated crime fiction and Nordic noir in particular. Today, to celebrate the publication of A Patient Fury, I’m giving away a set of the Martin Beck books by Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. Published between 1965 and 1975, the books have been a huge influence on many writers. This edition has introductions from authors such as Henning Mankell and Colin Dexter and when placed together spell the name of their detective across the spine. It’s a lovely set and a duplicate of the ones I already have. I’ll also throw in a packet of Scandi chocolates for liquorice fans.
We’ve just opened entires for the 2018 Petrona Award for Translated Scandinavian Crime Fiction and I’m looking forward to reading the entries.
