Swedish Crime Fiction – women writers

I have just finished two Scandinavian crime fiction novels, both written by women. The Hidden Child by Camilla Lackberg and Savage Alter (Sunstorm in USA) by Asa Larsson.

It is interesting that both women had the unlikely professions of economist (Camilla Lackberg) and tax lawyer (Asa Larsson) before they became writers. Both write brilliant thrillers and both write from a woman’s perspective.

I look forward to reading Larsson’s next book, “The Blood Spilt”. Since I have read all of Lackberg’s books I will just have to be patient and wait until her next book is released.
