    The Tattooed Girl: The Enigma of Stieg Larsson and the Secrets Behind the Most Compelling Thrillers of our Time by Dan Burstein, Arne de Keijzer & John-Henri Holmberg (St. Martin's Griffin)?  Sounds interesting.

    I read The Cat's Table, by Michael Ondaatje. Wonderful story, but not essentially a mystery.

    •  Haven't read The Cat's Table, but do wonder about (7+ / 0-)

      the book on Stieg Larsson. That would be my first non-fiction choice and then the one on the Savage City which is about New York City, and according to the Amazon review:

      One part police procedural, one part historical narrative, T.J. English's The Savage City: Race, Murder, and a Generation on the Edge follows three different men caught in the fallout of New York City's most turbulent decade as race relations, corruption, and crime reached a stormy head. English traces the events that shook the city to its core during the '60s and early '70s, from the assassination of Malcolm X and the rise and fall of the Black Panthers, to the trial that exposed the multiple layers of corruption plaguing the city's police department.
