Book It: Glass Key Roundup

Finished the last of the Glass Key books for the year. I read 9 winning books this year and have now read 12 of the 22 Glass Key winning books in all (I think 2 more will be published in the US next year).

I enjoyed every book I read and it was a nice goal to have because I read books I probably wouldn't have read otherwise.

Here's a final list of all the books I read in a loose order of best to "worst".

A Conspiracy of Faith- Jussi Adler-Olsen (2010, Denmark)

Faceless Killers- Henning Mankell (1992, Sweden)

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- Stieg Larsson (2006, Sweden)

The Bat- Jo Nesbo (1998, Norway)

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest- Stieg Larsson (2008, Sweden)

Missing- Karin Alvtegen (2001, Sweden)

Silence of the Grave- Arnaldur Indriðason (2003, Iceland)

Don't Look Back- Karin Fossum (1997, Norway)

Jar City- Arnaldur Indriðason (2002, Iceland)

The Darkest Room- Johan Theorin (2009, Sweden)

Lime's Photograph- Leif Davidsen (1999, Denmark)

Smilla's Sense of Snow- Peter Hoeg (1993, Denmark)
