On the 6th Day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me: six geese a-laying,

five golden rings,

four calling birds,

three french hens,

two turtle doves,

and a partridge in a pear tree.

The Golden Goose

To symbolize the gift on the sixth day of Christmas (six geese a-laying) we selected the crime novel The Golden Goose by Stieg Trenter. Original title in Swedish: Guldgåsen

Before Larsson there was Trenter. Stieg Larsson is not the only Swedish crime writer named Stieg. Stieg Trenter was one of the most popular crime writers in Sweden in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Stieg Trenter’s first crime novel was published in 1943, and he wrote over 20 books about the investigator Friberg. The Golden Goose is one of them.

I have no idea how I have missed the books by Trenter, but I will definitely put at least one of them on my reading list for next year.
