New Best Seller: William Kent Krueger

Mystery writer William Kent Krueger’s previous book came tantalizingly close to hitting the NYT Hardcover Fiction Best Seller list, spending one week at #18 on the extended list. Appropriately, the twelfth title in his Cork O’Connor series, Trickster’s Point (S&S/Atria; Thorndike Large Print), lands solidly on the  list at #12 this week.

Krueger’s main character is a rural Minnesota P.I. who is half-Ojibwa Indian and half Irish. The author is known for the northern Minnesota settings. He clearly loves the region, as expressed in the trailer for his previous title, Northwest Angle.

In a recent post on is blog, God Bless Librarians, Krueger gives tribute to the person who turned him into a reader.
