Adler-Olsen, Jussi (Denmark) - His first book to be translated into English is The Keeper of Lost Causes, the first in a series about chief detective Carl Morck.

I haven't read this yet, but I like the sound of the cold cases, the twisty plot, and the touch of humor that Glass Key winner Adler-Olsen is said to possess.
