Sue Trowbridge just sent me this news of these great Swedish stamps that honor Swedish mystery writers. Sue reads Swedish, I don't, but you can get the gist...or you can run the articles below using Google Translate.
These Swedish stamps were recently released. In Sweden you needn't be dead to be put on a stamp. Swedish stamps are collected by people worldwide because of their beauty and interesting subject matter, so it's only natural that the postal service would introduce a set of stamps featuring one of the country's most popular exports -- crime fiction!
The authors on the stamps are Stieg Larsson, Liza Marklund, Henning Mankell, Håkan Nesser and Maj Sjöwall & Per Wahlöö.
and the Postal Service's page in English where you can buy these stamps for 60 kroner ($8) is HERE. Click on Buy next to the stamps you wish to purchase, and when you check out, it should take you through the steps in English. Thanks, Sue.
