New Mysteries in Translation

With the success of books like Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy and the Wallander mysteries by Henning Mankell (his standalone Man from Beijing has also been made into a movie), mysteries in translation have never been more popular!  If you have so far bucked this trend, perhaps you'll consider giving some of the library catalog's latest offerings a try.  We have mysteries translated from Swedish, Danish, Spanish, Italian, German, even Afrikaans!  Go ahead...take a dip in a truly international pool, and see what the rest of the world is reading!
