More crime - 2
A few signs of what may be a slight change in the attitudes of some SELTA members to the issue of the current dominance of crime writing in the Nordic – and particularly the Swedish – book world, and in translation. One U.K.-based member writes of the present vogue:

And the next issue of Swedish Book Review will apparently contain an article on this thorny subject.
