>En udfordring til mig selv – Suspense and Thriller Reading Challenge

>Jeg har besluttet mig for at melde mig til en af de talrige læse-udfordringer, der kan findes rundt om på engelske bogblogs. Denne udfordring er ret oplagt for mig; opgaven går ud på at læse tolv forskellige undergenrer af thrillers i løbet af 2009. For deltagere, som ikke sådan uden videre kan komme på mere end to-tre undergenrer, har J.Kay venligst lagt en lang liste med ikke mindre end 38 forskellige.

Challenging myself
I have decided to try the following reading challenge, found at J. Kay´s book blog: 2009 Suspense and Thriller Reading Challenge

The main rule is: read twelve different sub-genres of thrillers in 2009. I think I can do that – but let´s see. Afterwards the participants are supposed to post all their reviews in the same folders as inspiration.

My progress:
1) Anne Holt, What Never Happens/Det som aldrig sker – serial killer thriller
2) Sue Grafton, A is for Alibi/A for alibi – private detective mystery
3)Kerstin Ekman, Blackwater/Hændelser ved vand – psychological thriller.
4) Ingrid Hedström, The Schoolmistress of Villette/Lærerinden fra Villette – legal thriller.
5) Inger Frimansson, The Shadow in the Water/Skyggen i vandet – inverted mystery.
6) Ann Cleeves, The Crow Trap – eco thriller.
7) Mark Billingham, The Burning Girl/Den brændende pige – hard-boiled mystery.
8) Kjell Ole Dahl, The Fourth Man/Den fjerde røver – art crime/literary thriller.
9) Martin Edwards, The Coffin Trail – police procedural thriller.
10) Donna Moore, Go to Helena Handbasket – comic thriller.
11) Tana French, In the Woods/Skoven – murder mystery.
12) Charles Dickens, Our Mutual Friend/Vor Fælles Ven – historical thriller.

    >Thanks J.Kay for welcome + a great initiative! Bogsider: I know what you mean! But thrillers is my second-best genre, so I was compelled to! – and of course I will be cheating a bit. Many great crime novels are also categorized thriller so it should not be too hard 🙂
