If you're thinking, "Oh, no, not another Scandinavian mystery!" you are probably right. But Anne Holt is not just any Scandinavian mystery writer. She is none other than Norway's best selling female crime writer. And 1222 is not just another Scandinavian mystery. It has been compared to Agatha Christie's "locked room" mysteries. 1222 is the first of Holt's popular series to be translated into English, but is the 8th book in the Hanne Wilhelmsen series. The first book in the series, Blind Goddess, is scheduled to be released in the U.S. in June 2012. So watch for it to find out what makes Hanne tick. Maybe this series will satisfy your Stieg Larsson cravings.
