Come meet four writers who’ve placed dynamic women crime solvers at the center of their stories. Everyone’s favorite Paris détective très chic, Aimée Leduc from Cara Black’s “Murder on the Left Bank” confronts a cabal of corrupt Parisian cops, including one who masterminded her father’s murder. Detective Lena Stigersand from Kjell Ola Dahl’s “The Ice Swimmer” must solve the case of a dead man lifted from the Oslo Harbour while juggling a cancer scare, stalker, and untrustworthy boyfriend. With one foot on each side of the law, Detective Leona Lindberg in Jenny Rogneby’s “Any Means Necessary” investigates a terrorist attack in the heart of Stockholm. Bookstore owner and PI Nikki Griffin from S. A. Lelchuk’s “Save Me From Dangerous Men” tracks down men who hurt women to teach them a lesson, but when something goes wrong, she is no longer just solving a case—she’s trying to stay alive.
