Interview with Norwegian crime writer Gunnar Staalesen

Here’s a link to an interview with the Norwegian crime writer Gunnar Staalesen in The Scotsman. He talks interestingly about the city of Bergen as backdrop for his fiction and about his great American heroes of crime. Have any of you read Staalesen, what do you think? Who do you think is the most interesting Norwegian crime writer?

    Thanks for the interview link! I have read: At Night All Wolve’s Are Grey. It was exellent. I have also read The Writing on the Wall…that was good too. I enjoy the Varg Veum TV series as well. There was an interview with Staalsen at the end of last season’s TV run. It was a great interview. I am waiting for the new season to begin. I also want to read: Yours until Death. Thank God for Amazon UK.

  2. I have read a few Varg Veum stories, but even though I like them, I think they are a bit quiet and old-fashioned compared to Nesbø´s fantastic series.
