1 Dahl, ArneMisterioso
New York Pantheon Books 2011 0375425357 / 9780375425356 First American Edition Wraps Fine 
"Uncorrected bound galleys." Translated from the Swedish by Tiina Nunnally. Red paper wraps. 340 numbered pages. First page is a glossy proof sample of the cover. ~ Fine condition, tight, clean, appears unread. Interior pages unmarked. ~~ Originally published in Swedish in 1999, Misterioso is the first in what is now known as the Intercrime series, which includes ten titles in Swedish. This novel is Arne Dahl's (pen name of Jan Arnald) English translation debut, and apparently planned as the first of three to be published by Pantheon, since it is heralded on the back cover as "the first novel in the gripping Intercrime trilogy." In this novel we meet Stockholm detective Paul Hjelm, who becomes a part of an unusual collective of Swedish detectives who have joined forces to combat international crime. Dahl has garnered praise both for this original premise, which reflects Sweden's contemporary problems as a small country dealing with a globalized world, and for what he himself describes as an attempt at "high" literature: "a richly varied style, a nuanced set of characters, a certain intellectual level of comprehension, and, not least, a sense of humour that is quite unique - while still being a true thriller: hardboiled, exciting, surprising, and loaded with action" (author's website). Dahl is the only Scandinavian crime author ever to win both the German Crime Writing Award (2005) and the Danish Crime Writing Award (2004). Dahl is a Scandinavian author to watch. At the time of listing, this is the only uncorrected proof copy available for sale.
