Read a bunch of books so far this summer. Mostly detective/mystery types of the Scandinavian variety:
"Box 21" all I can say is this book is brutal, dark, and has an ending that's very hard to take. Excellent plot line and it doesn't matter that you have it figured out because a few of the characters carry you all the way.
"Jar City" also dark but less brutal. Decent detective work and a look at Iceland from the native point of view.
"Snow Angels" set in Finland, tough to stomach at times, hits on the themes of place and home and why are we here.
"Spies of the Balkans" by Alan Furst. I liked his early books. Been stumbling lately, going to give him another shot.
Currently reading "In The Woods" by Tana French. Ireland, murder, past and present colliding. So far, fairly good.
Picked up the Slash (Guns n Roses guitarist) autobiography and enjoying it. It's pretty gritty and certainly not for all audiences. I was a huge fan of theirs in the late 80s and early 90s and I'm playing in a band again, so this was an easy choice.
