After enjoying Steig Larsson's books, I've delved into Scandinavian crime quite a bit. The two best authors for my money are Jo Nesbo and Arnaldur Indridasson. Both are consistenly very good, and books like Indridasson's Silence of the Grave and Nesbo's The Devil's Star are nearly great.
Henning Mankell's books are alright, but they are soooo dryly written (even by Scandinavian crime standards).

Reason: did not want to subject anyone to the horrid spelling and grammar
