    Sorry for the late response.
    If you haven’t found him…Jo Nesbo is a Swedish author.
    His books are best from the beginning but start anywhere.

    From reading your comments I have discovered That I am on possibly an impossible task. I collect #1’s of British mystery series. I have well over 100 but I know there are many, many more. Is it possible to get a list of authors etc. or are there just too many. Thank you so much, in advance, for whatever suggestions you might have.
    P. S. To make it worse I even started on Europe proper with
    Sweden, Iceland, Denmark and France. Love your emails.
    Thanks again.

      THat does sound like an impossible task – especially with more and more authors coming out every day. Unfortunately, we don’t have any lists at the moment of authors where you could break it down by nationality and genre. Possibly down the road. That might be one where you have to rely on Googling and looking up various lists.
