Fredrik Backman, author of book group favorite A Man Called Ove, is back with a new story, Beartown. The titular community is a small town in decline, but their junior ice hockey team, about to compete in the national semi-finals, could put Beartown back on the map. That is, unless the repercussions of a raucous team party throw them off the rails. In The Thirst by Jo Nesbø, Harry Hole is called back on the case to apprehend a serial killer attacking Tinder uses.
