    Well, the title pretty much sums it up: do you have any fantasy books by Swedish authors you would recommend?

    See, since I'm from Sweden myself, I thought it would be nice to read something that's not been written by a foreign author for a change - I'm curious to know what sort of books Swedish authors have to offer, like. But since there aren't that many people (=authors) specialized within this genre here, I don't really know where to look...

    So... fire away if you have any got recommendations and/or suggestions on your mind. :)

    Not fantasy, but I recently read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series and loved it. :)

    Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist. Its a horror novel (And a damn nasty one!) but I've always found the genres closely related.
    And yes, Wallander is cool!
