The challenge as I understand it is to read 6 books set in Scandinavia from March 1 to the end of 2010.
My list will all be crime fiction.
Here is what I have read so far.
- THE WATER'S EDGE, Karin Fossum - Norway - 13 March
- THE MAN FROM BEIJING, Henning Mankell - Sweden - 10 April
I've found a definition of Scandinavia as follows:
Norway, Sweden, and Denmark - are primarily considered to be Scandinavian countries.
They mutually recognize each other as parts of Scandinavia and therefore, reflect the cultural similarities between these countries, despite their political independence.
However, the usage and meaning of the term outside of Scandinavia is somewhat ambiguous because Finland and Iceland are occasionally counted as parts of Scandinavia.
