I've been enjoying a lot of crime in translation recently. It's good to get away from the usual haunts of the UK and US, or from English-language writers sending their character on an exotic holiday, both of which can get a little stale at times, or don't capture that culture-from-the-inside-out feeling that some of the authors below do.
Authors I've read and really liked over the past year are Arnaldur Indridason, Ake Edwardson, Karin Fossum, Eugenio Fuentes, Jakob Arjouni and Jan Costin Wagner. Authors I've read something by, and would give another go to, include Hakan Nesser, Matti Joensu, Jo Nesbo, and Fred Vargas. Have read enough Henning Mankell in the past to do me for some time (and liked them less, the more I read).
Any other suggestions, please? (I've had Matti Joensu, Gianrico Carofiglio and Jose Carlos Somoza recommended to me already).
Looking at it, it's a very Eurocentric list, so I'd particularly appreciate suggestions of any good authors from other parts of the world.
