RARA-AVIS: North Country Noirs

To perhaps take noirs in the opposite direction made by the tropical noir thread, I thought of cold. A rara-avian (Harry Hunsicker?) recommended the noir books by Jenny Siler. I recently enjoyed reading ICED set in Missoula, MT, over Christmas. Meg Gardner, is a hardbitten, resilient young lady with a raw past. I'll get to the others soon, I hope. You might like them for a change of pace.

Are there other noirs from up north?

On Michael Connelly, one aspect impressing me is his mass appeal. My wife's (all ladies) reading group made THE LINCOLN LAWYER one month's selection. What a talent.
