Dregs - Jørn Lier Horst

Really good read. I've tried a few other Scandinavian mysteries and this is the first that kept my interest. The plot was not intricate but unwound slowly throughout the book. (One of my pet peeves is when the sleuth suddenly has an epiphany and solves the mystery in on paragraph. I liked that this was solved in little pieces though the book.) The location was vivid and added a lot of dimension to the story. The characters were realistic and interesting.

 

Overall a great read, very hard to put down once I got into it. I'd love to read more, but I'm not sure my Norwegian is good enough to read a novel. Would be worth it to give it a shot, though.
