the paul hjelm series

All lists of the Paul Hjelm (variously called Intercrime or A-gruppen) series place Misterioso first, even though it was published after Ont blod. Though a prequel of sorts for its initial readers, Misterioso was composed first and thus has priority. Most translation series start with Misterioso.
