2010 Global Reading Challenge

Check out the 2010 Global Reading challenge:

That's a great way to explore novels/mysteries from different continents. My reading has been way too Euro-centric and America centric, so I decided to participate.
Last year's list didn't include anything from other continents (except one Jo Nesboe that took place in Australia, but I think that's cheating since she is Norwegian). And I guess, S.J.Rozan's mysteries that take place in Hongkong don't count either.

I wonder which continent Island belongs to. One of the books on my wish list is from Yrsa Sigurdardottir, sounds quite interesting. Also, I have seen a lot from Arnaldur Indridason, which probably means that he should be on the list for this year.

An interesting list of Brazilian authors can be found at

For Antarctica, Robert Masello's Blood and Ice sounds interesting.
