Intermediate books in Swedish

I am looking for suggestions of intermediate books in Swedish. I am looking for reading books and not textbooks as I have textbooks. Can anyone recommend me some?

I'll add, if I may, a request for books for children at the level of middle elementary grades: books about at the difficulty of Pippi Långstrump , on up. I'm not ready for them yet but hope to be soon. Suggestions of adventure stories for boys or science fiction would be super.

And even more useful would be a suggestion of where to order reasonably priced books in Swedish from the U.S.

(I'm used to ordering from sellers in France, Spain, and Russian but have found no equivalent shop in Sweden. The few U.S. booksellers so far found seem far over priced, and the one shop located (online) in Sweden with good prices does not ship to the U.S., as they seem to be unable to get their shipments through customs (IIRC) although they've "filled the form out right." (now, does that sound reasonable?).

Anyway, thanks!

Hello, you could try Den Elaka Systern ; The Wicked Sister by Heather Stotz this is a murder mystery/psychological thriller, after each page there is an English translation. best regards Sue Rich

I started with Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander novels. That worked well for me. (They aren't exactly great literature though.) Generally speaking I'd focus more on finding something one's interested in than something that's (supposed to be) easy to read. I didn't like the "lättlästa böcker" I got a hold of at all. Your mileage may vary though.
