Thanks to the popularity of Steig Larsson’s dark thrillers, Nordic noir is thriving, writes USA Today staffer Carol Memmott ("Chill with the Season's New Nordic Noir," Jan. 16, 2012). Appropriate to the season, she offers recommendations for several new thrillers set in wintry Scandinavian landscapes. Our staff offers a few older titles others to try.

Cell 8 by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom
Night Rounds: An Inspector Irene Huss Investigation by Helene Tursten (coming soon; place a hold)
