I read books (and place a review here afterwards) in the following categories Mystery/Detective, British literature (mostly older books, from Gutenberg.org), Adventure, some Dutch lieterature and more.

My top favorite writers are John Galsworthy, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, but among my five-star reviews you will also find (debuts of) contemporary writers. A recent example is Gillian Flynn. I mostly read ebooks.

I de lugnaste vatten - Viveca Sten

The debut novel of a Swedish lawyer. It is a good detective story, and it also includes something of the daily life of the main characters. Although the outcome is not very surprising, I guess you will not be able to predict the whole plot.

I can recommend this novel, of which have been sold almost a million copies worldwide, warmly for your holidays!
