When it comes to authors who aren't American or British, I don't have much of a clue about who is reputable or not. A few months ago I ran across a reference to a book about the Danish Court/Royal Family that sounded interesting. But, when I looked up the author it seemed like her style was more akin to Kitty Kelley than, e.g., Hannah Pakula. I figured if anyone knew who was "worth reading" or not, it would be all y'all here on the royal boards. Haakon and Maud are another interest of mine. It looks like my Norwegian skills are going to get a workout, courtesy of Tor Bomann-Larsen's writings.
Thank you, again. I always look forward to book recommendations.
