by Peter

Are you a fan of Scandinavian crime fiction or Scandinavian fiction, and wonders what the Scandinavians themselves read in 2011? Well – it differs a lot from country to country. Here is the list of bestselling books in Denmark for January 9-15, 2011:

  1. Paganinikontrakten, Lars Kepler
  2. Flaskepost fra P, Jussi Adler-Olsen
  3. Kvinden i buret, Jussi Adler-Olsen
  4. Fasandræberne, Jussi Adler-Olsen
  5. Minilæseuglen 1-6 Serie 1
  6. Jordens søjler, Ken Follett
  7. Uendelige verden, (Kjempenes fall (Norwegian text) Ken Follett
  8. Alfabethuset, Jussi Adler-Olsen
  9. Og hun takkede guderne, Jussi Adler-Olsen
  10. Washington dekretet, Jussi Adler-Olsen

So the answer as far as the Danes are concerned: The primarily read Lars Kepler (Kepler’s second book) and Jussi Adler-Olsen. Six of books on the top 10 list are written by Jussi Adler-Olsen, who also won the Glass Key award for 2010! There seems to be a Adler-Olsen flu in Denmark for the moment. His books are outstand and very suspenseful, so I actually expect the flu to spread to the other Scandinavian countries as well!

And, in addition, the Danes read Ken Follett’s historical fiction novels. So now you know!
