For Adults: Hard Men

By Susan Jessen Spiele, librarian at Roskilde Libraries.

I love hanging out with the bad boys; persons and actions abound which I would never condone nor contemplate in real life! All the dark and ugly stuff is aired and you get to root for a somewhat good guy doing bad things – that you can’t or won’t do yourself.  If a bit of bad goes a long way, then take a trip along the scenic route with these guys.

Shamelessly addictive and action-packed

John Connolly: Every Dead Thing

Horrifying, brilliant and evocative

Fast and action-packed
