Jane, blogging in Danish from Birmingham, wrote an interesting comment on my Nesser review the other day:
I love Nesser, but have only been able to lay my hands on the first two van Veteeren novels -I really enjoyed them! I cannot believe that anyone could miss the humor in Nessers books. It is very understated, but nevertheless always present (in my opinion, there might be almost too much understated humor in the Barbarotti novels, but that is another story).
A good question for international readers: does the type of humor used by Nesser only make Scandinavian people laugh or chuckle?
I also think that this is a good question. So good that I wanted to post about it today - and hopefully some of you will take the time to think about it, and write a comment.
