2011 Nordic Book Challenge

I aimed for the Odin level of this challenge which required me to read 11-20 books during the year but I ended up at the Valhalla level of 20+ books (23 and a half if I’m scrupulous).

Many of these are great books, as can be seen from the high number of red stars (which indicates rated 3 or above) but if forced to pick a favourite I’d probably pick BOX 21. Or UNTIL THY WRATH BE PAST. Or THE QUARRY. I didn’t notice until writing up this wrap up that so many of the books were set in Sweden, next year I’ll try to expand to other countries in the region.

Books Read

Thanks to Zee from Notes from the North for hosting the challenge, sorry I dropped the ball on linking my review posts (one of the reasons I’m reducing my challenge participation next year) but I did enjoy the reading.

  1. Can I suggest Burned by Thomas Enger (Norway) pub by Faber? It’s not out until June 2011 but I have read an advance copy and I think it’s pretty good – possibly very good – it would be interesting to see what you think. I have no connection to Enger or Faber.


  2. Thanks for that suggestion Michael, I’ll look out for it.
