Why Suspense Fiction?

All books are a portal to any place — real or imagined. Why then do we focus more on suspense fiction? What is it about reading suspense fiction and crime fiction that is different from other genres?

Suspense fiction allows us to witness an action, often a crime, around which the story is set. As readers, we walk straight into the story. Sometimes, we watch every character’s journey as an all-knowing observer.  But mostly, we take on the role of a protagonist set on a path of uncovering the unknown. We begin to see the world set in the book by their eyes. The ability to be in the role of the main character, whether it’s a male or a female protagonist, allows readers to experience places like one is actually physically present there. 

Experiencing Different Worlds & Culture

Non-fictions like Why Nations Fail, Guns, Germs, and Steel, can teach us about cultures; however, the thrill and emotion associated can only be experienced in the fiction genre!To find reading exciting, we suggest picking up a book or even watching a show, that falls under suspense fiction. From Nordic Noir to thrilling Swedish suspense fiction, suspense based fiction provides a foot in the door to explore Scandinavian countries, their rich culture, and engaging novels.
