Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge; Book(s) Set in My City


It's Wednesday and time for a new Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge post, courtesy of Long and Short Reviews. The theme of the week was book(s) set in my city or state.

Jernspøkelset by Ivar Aase is a book set in Bryne, Norway, but I'm unsure if it will ever be translated into English.

Requiem by Geir Tangen is set in Haugesund, Norway and this one I know has been translated English and a few other languages.

  1. They both look like very interesting stories. :)

    1. I haven't read anything by Jo Nesbø yet, and as he lives in another part of Norway, I felt he wasn't quite relevant. :-) But I've heard he's good though.

    1. Armchair travelling is a lot of fun, especially now when everything is a bit restricted.

  9. It's so cool to see where all of the other authors are from. I tip my hat to you, because English must be a second language for you? Yet here you are. My mom spoke Polish first, but never taught it to me, because she didn't want me to know what she was saying when she spoke with her siblings and her mom. The French I took for 6 years is probably still in my head somewhere, since I was able to converse, read, and write in it. But I've never used it since school, so I can't access it easily. The only time it appears is when I'm trying to speak Spanish, then a word will throw itself into my mouth, and I'll be embarrassed to realize it's a French word, not a Spanish one.

    1. Yeah, English is my second language, Norwegian being my first language. Although I do speak a bit German and Spanish as well after being taught both languages at school, in addition to understanding Swedish and Danish fluently (one of the perks of Scandinavian languages being similar).

      In terms of language slip-up; I'm sometimes stuck knowing a word in one language and all of a sudden struggle figuring out what the Norwegian equivalent is. :-P

  10. Ooh! A Nordic crime recommendation! Right up my alley. I fell completely in love with Norway when I visited. It was STUNNING and everyone was gorgeous and incredibly friendly. It's on my bucket list to come back. In the meantime, I have books!
