With all the coverage of our centennial, you may be wondering “what about the new books?” Not to worry– there are plenty of new titles to choose from. The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larrson, which concludes the trilogy that started with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is the most early awaited of the new offerings. The Washington Post rated the series “among those novels that expand the horizons of popular fiction”. If you like Larrson, you might want to try The Man From Beijing (Henning Mankell), in which only clue to a mass murder is a red ribbon, or The Devil’s Star (Jo Nesbo), in which pits the protagonist against a serial killer and an enemy within the Oslo police department. Other new Crimes titles include Sizzling Sixteen, the latest Stepanie Plum story, Pray for Silence, the sophomore Amish murder mystery by Linda Caastillo, and many other series favorites.
