Swedish Reading Club: Bad Blood (Ont blod) by Arne Dahl
We will be meeting at Covenant Village of the Great Lakes, 2510 Lake Michigan Drive NW (between Oakleigh and Fairfield).
When police find a Swedish literary critic tortured to death in a janitor's closet at Newark International Airport, they realize that the murderer has made off with the victim's ticket and boarded a flight to Stockholm, where he apparently slipped through customs. With no clear motive in sight, Detectives Paul Hjelm and Kerstin Holm of Intercrime's A-Unit take over the investigation. They learn that the method of torture used was not only a highly specialized means of extracting information—secretly developed during the Vietnam War—but also that it was the modus operandi of an allegedly deceased homicidal maniac known only as the Kentucky Killer.
The book is available at Schuler's, 2660 28th Street SE, at a 20% discount!
You can also buy the book online at Schuler's or another independent bookstore.
Women's Group: Flitiga Lisor
Flitiga Lisor är en grupp kvinnliga, svensktalande medlemmar som träffas ungefär en gång i månaden. Gruppen startades under hösten 2003, då vi träffades regelbundet för att tillverka julsaker att sälja på Lucia. Det lyckades bra och förtjänsten gick till SAHS. När vi inte känner för att vara så flitiga, träffas vi bara för att prata och fika.
Flitiga Lisor is a group of Swedish speaking women that meets once a month or so. It began during the fall of 2003 when we got together to make Christmas crafts to sell at the Lucia celebration. The project was a success and the money earned went to SAHS. When we feel less inclined to work we get together to have coffee and speak Swedish.
