Stories by Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, and over a dozen other masters of Nordic noir: "A wonderful collection" (Camilla L?ckberg). Ever since Stieg Larsson shone a light on Swedish crime writing with his Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, readers around the world have devoured fiction by Scandinavian masters of suspense. A Darker Shade of Sweden includes an assortment of outstanding crime fiction—never before published in English and in some cases brand-new to this volume—from Larsson and a wide range of other talents including Henning Mankell, the creator of Kurt Wallander; Asa Larsson; Eva Gabrielsson; Inger Frimansson; Ake Edwardson; Sara Stridsberg; Maj SjOwall and Per WahlOO; and more. Also included is an introduction by Edgar nominee John-Henri Holmberg, exploring the history of these stellar authors and their contributions to crime writing. "Gripping. . . . These unsettlingly dark tales reaffirm the dominance of Swedish writers with original crime fiction." —The Sun (UK)
