Scandinavian mystery of the day: The Boy in the Suitcase. This one grabs you by the neck from the first few pages and never lets go until the thrills-and-chills dénouement. It's written collaboratively by two women, in a pairing reminiscent of Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö, the wife-and-husband team of detective writers from Sweden.
Literary quiz of the day: match the well-known book title to its alternate title. I expect you Gleaners to do well, because some of these have floated by here lately!
