    Another good author is Jussi Adler-Olsen, (Danish author). Discovered his novels by chance and have thoroughly enjoyed the two I have read up till now. The hanging girl was the first novel I read by him, followed by Victim.

    Yes I have read all of Jussi Adler Olsen’s books. Hakan Nesser and Henning Mankell are great too.
