Writer of the Month–Lars Kepler

I have just finished reading the latest Joona Linna thriller The Rabbit Hunter.  For the month of July I’m selecting Lars Kepler as the writer of the month.  Lars Kepler is actually the pseudonym for the Swedish writing team of the married couple Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril.

I don’t know if many Americans are familiar with the Joona Linna thrillers written by Lars Kepler.  I haven’t seen any of the books on the New York Times best-seller list.  I don’t think all of the books in the Joona Linna series have been published in the US, though Sara Crichton did publish several.  The Sandman put out by Knopf has been published in the US.  The whole series has been translated into English, however, and is published in Great Britain.  I don’t know why it has taken so long for Lars Kepler to catch on in the US.

I haven’t read all of the thrillers.  I’ve read only The Sandman and The Rabbit Hunter.  I preferred The Sandman, but both of these books are excellent fast-paced blood-soaked thrillers, and I’m eager to read the rest of the books in the series.

If you haven’t read Lars Kepler yet and lust for blood and action-packed suspense in your choice of thrillers, this is the month to try him/her, and you’ll be in for a treat.
