Thinking about the 999 Challenge has given me lots of thoughts on books I want to read.

Firstly I'm continuing with crime & detectives and considering reading 9 books from different countries. Here are a few I've come across.

Out by Natsuo Kirino
Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann
Ice Moon by Jan Costin Wagner
Naked Came the Manatee by Hiaasen
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo
Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell
Jar City Arnaldur Indriason

There seems to be a lot here from cold Scandinavian countries! I will try to find some more tropical detectives for some balance.
