More detective fiction

Waking up in my "wagon lit" with a view over the snow clad Swiss mountains I began reading some new crime fiction. Asa Larsson's The Blood Spilt has a female clergy woman who runs a women's theology group as the victim of a brutal attack - she's left hanging from the organ loft.
I'm relieved that the action is not set on the Franco-Swiss border but in northern Sweden otherwise it might have seemed a bit too close for comfort. It's very well translated for the most part, though of course I enjoy nit-picking with some of the English at times too.
