Firstly Happy New Year to everyone – in all the Nordic languages to your right too! There are no reading resolutions from me today (they’ll come later) as instead it’s my pleasure to welcome you all to Nordic FINDS 2023 – a month of celebrating literature from the five Nordic countries:
Last year, I devoted a week to each country, but this year, it’s more casual with no themed weeks. My own aim is to read one book from each country during the month. You are welcome to join in however you wish, with books by Nordic authors or a Nordic setting.
I’ll make this post sticky, so you can add links to your reviews in the comments. For tweeting etc please use the hashtag #NordicFINDS23.
Please feel free to use the banner – a smaller version is to your left.
I’m adding in all the reviews to my master Nordic FINDS page here too.
I also picked the thriller most recommended to me from last year as a readalong title should you be minded to join me.
The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup, creator of the hit TV series The Killing. Translated from the Swedish by Caroline Waight.

I will primarily comment on Twitter as I go for this rather than split into any formal readalong chunks, with a review near the end of the month.
