Beartown, by Fredrik Backman (A Man Called Ove).  Beartown is a small, remote, Swedish village whose people are hoping that their junior hockey team might bring them national glory and with it economic revival. All is going well until a terrible incident suddenly changes everything. Accusations are made and spread like ripples on a pond, leaving no resident unaffected. Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.

May 1, 2018.  Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, by David Grann.  In the 1920s, among the richest people in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation of Oklahoma, with vast oil reserves lying under their lands.  One by one, however, they were being murdered along with anyone investigating the killings. The newly formed FBI initially bungled the case, finally turning to former Texas Ranger Tom White who assembled an undercover team.  Together with the Osage, they exposed one of the most sinister conspiracies in American history.

June 5, 2018. Iron Lake by William Kent Krueger.  Cork O’Connor – part Irish and part Anishinaabe Indian — is the former sheriff of Aurora, Minnesota, located in the state’s northern lake country. Embittered by loss of his job and a marital meltdown, Cork gets by on heavy doses of caffeine, nicotine, and guilt. When the town’s judge is brutally murdered and a young Eagle Scout goes missing, Cork unravels a harrowing web of conspiracy, corruption, and scandal spun around the town’s officials. This is the first of an award-winning series of mysteries set in the wilds of Minnesota.
