Unwanted by Kristina Ohlsson (FIC OHLSSON)
This very good mystery set in Sweden is the first in a new series being translated into English. Would especially suggest if you like the author Jo Nesbo.
Peter De Vries is a name you may not be familiar with, but this author (born in Chicago) writes satire that is side-splitting funny and has a great perspective. Several of his titles are available as eBooks in Hoopla – give one a try!
