Mystery and crime fiction have always been popular genres in public libraries, but in 2010 patrons were enthralled by a certain tattooed Swedish girl who played with fire and kicked the hornet’s nest. Stieg Larsson’s acclaimed Millenium trilogy topped library circulation lists in all formats (print, ebook, and audiobook). Larsson was not only ubiquitous, he and his heroine had also become an institution in libraries. While readers are searching for the next Stieg Larsson, they remain hungry for more thrillers, historicals, police procedurals, cozies, and romantic suspense. Help satisfy that hunger by filling your library shelves with the latest titles from their favorite mystery writers!
