Do you love Scandinavian crime fiction? Be sure to check out books by celebrated Norwegian mystery writer Vidar Sundstøl. In the February 2015 issue of Viking, we feature a Q&A with Sundstøl on page 46. He’s the author of seven novels, but is probably best known for his Minnesota Trilogy. The three books showcase his affinity for the North Shore of Lake Superior and combines immigrant stories with murder mystery.

The Minnesota Trilogy includes the books, The Land of Dreams, Only the Dead and The Ravens.

This spring, he will be touring the Midwest in conjunction with the release of The Ravens. Check out this podcast which features an interview with Sundstøl.
