"[A] superb sampling of Swedish crime writing talent . . . will be appreciated by fans of Stieg Larsson's Millennium [series] and Jens Lapidus's Easy Money." —Library Journal What could be more peaceful than a city made up of a series of islands surrounded by crystal-clear water? But like any big, international metropolis, Stockholm has a dark side—fed by the disparity between its affluent boroughs and its more gritty suburbs. But even in the heart of its medieval streets, existential dread makes its presence known and gives Stockholm its own brand of Scandinavian noir. In Stockholm Noir, you'll find stories by Unni Drougge, Inger Edelfeldt, Carl-Michael Edenborg, Ake Edwardson, TorbjOrn Elensky, Inger Frimansson, Carl Johan De Geer, Martin Holmen, Nathan Larson, Malte Persson, Anna-Karin Selberg, Johan Theorin, and Lina Wolff. "Capture[s] the gloomy underside of Sweden's capital, portraying the hopelessness of those trapped in what Larson and Edenborg in their introduction call the city that 'devours your soul.'" —Publishers Weekly, starred review "Another worthy entry in this globe-trotting mystery series." —Booklist "Stockholm may not be Marseille, but Larson and Edenborg's contributors show that even a verdant place with socialized medicine can have its seamy side." —Kirkus Reviews
