The Wolf and the Watchman, Niklas Natt och Dag's new mystery, combines the historical sensibilities of Hillary Mantel and C.J. Sansom with the noir instincts of Steig Larson and Jo Nesbo. In 1793 Stockholm, a watchman pulls a mutilated body from bog. What follows is a taut and gripping thriller with a pair of mismatched detectives: an ornery alcoholic veteran with the wooden hand and a consumptive, idealistic, meticulous lawyer. As their investigation takes them all over the city, we begin to see a web of deception, crime, and cruelty that stains even the most pure. As the proverb goes, homo homini lupus est - Man is wolf to man.

If you're looking for a good mystery for fall, look no further than Desolation Mountain. William Kent Krueger weaves a dynamic mystery involving a plane crash, a mystic vision and political intrigue, all against the beautiful backdrop of a northern Minnesota autumn. Krueger's portrait of an indigenous community combined with his almost reverent depiction of the forests and hills of Minnesota leave me feeling warm and nostalgic, while the energy of the story keeps me on the edge of my seat. This is a perfect book for a rainy fall day with a cup of warm apple cider in your hand.
