The Carnival heads north this time, to your humble archivist’s obsession Scandinavian Crime Fiction blog. This “enabler edition” urges readers to buy books, lots of books, and points out some thoughtful commentary on crime fiction around the world.
And if the “go ahead, you know you want to buy those books” argument hasn’t persuaded you on economic grounds, Ali Karim stands by with a stirring defense of the genre as the best place to encounter “life’s rich tapestry.”
Up next: the Carnival has a return engagement scheduled at The Rap Sheet. Look for it in a couple of weeks or so.
