DH had read about five books in his life until he read the Robert Galbraith books and he is now a convert (at last). Since reading those, he has read and loved Stieg Larsson's trilogy and is about to start the next one (that someone else has written from Larsson's notes). I was wondering what I can buy him for his birthday he could move on to next. Recommendations gratefully received!

Try I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes

Also Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

The Lewis Trilogy by Peter May, set in the Hebrides, is brilliant.

Also Robert Goddard writes very readable mysteries. I remember In Pale Battalions as particularly good.

And he might like the Shardlake series, by CJ Sansom, set in Tudor London.

RD Wingfield 'Frost' series - excellent and the banter between the characters is great.

If he enjoys Scandi crime them the kepler books are great. Hard to put down but a bit grim.

John Connelly Charlie Parker series.

Nicci French

Alex Marwood

Tana French Dublin murder squad

Big recommendations for all of the above.

Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus series, set in Edinburgh. The very best of "Tartan Noir."
