Happy to see Sara Blaedel as Author of the Month. She's a great person and I wish you could read her Danish tweets and posts on Facebook - I love her sense of humor :-)

If interested, you can visit my blog. I made a post about Sara in November - http://danishbookshelf.wordpress.com/...

So far I've only read Grønt støv and Call Me Princess but I have the entire series on my bookshelf :-)

Erin (ErinFaye) | 2 comments Hi all: I have some extra copies of CALL ME PRINCESS, and if any of the group members would like one (for yourself or your local library), please just send me a message. I'll even include a signed bookplate from Sara! :)

Ken Fredette (klfredette) Well I finished Only One Life: A Novel and with all that's happened last week, it started out spooky with her teacher and school friends being interviewed. However when I got through that it took off. It was a good read.

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments Am really enjoying Farewell to Freedom. So far, I think this is the best of hers. Very, very low on any romance and is weaving a really nice mystery as to how two storylines intersect. I can't wait to find out.


message 13: by Naomi, the Sanity Check (new)

Naomi (nblackburn) | 932 comments I finished Farewell to Freedom. Although it wasn't my favorite of hers and I still preferred ONLY ONE LIFE...this was good. Again, she wrote on a topic that could occur in everyday life. There was also no romance in this one. Always a bonus for me.

Jenny (JennyIL) | 20 comments Call me Princess was available as an e-book through Overdrive. I really enjoyed it.

Hello Erin,
I know it's very late to ask, but do you still have copies left?
I would love to have one.

Thank You,

Art Levine (httpgoodreadscomArt_Levine) | 2 comments I'm a fan of nordic noir, but I'm unclear if there's an online discussion reading group affiliated with Nordic Noir group, where can one see past or currents discussions posted, and is there a time frame to read any particular book and discuss it? Also, where does this nordic noir discussion group --or anywhere on goodreads - post a list of its favorite Nordic Noir books or authors? I'm a fan of the author of hypothermia, etc., among others, including Mankell, early to middle Nesbo, and Karen Fossum, etc.

Dee (austhokie) | 652 comments Art - we don't have a specific favorites list - we have one about intro books to NN - best bet is just to explore the group
