Any suggestions for a really "cold" mystery? Dead Cold by Louise Penny. Winter Study by Nevada Barr. Sue Henry and Dana Stabenow write mysteries set in Alaska. Snow falling on cedars isn't quite as cold as the title suggests, but fairly chilly.

It doesn't get much colder than that. Another one that isn't a mystery per se, but has mysterious circumstances is In the Deep Midwinter by Robert Clark. It's the story of a family coming apart in Missouri. Very good and very under-read. The nine tailors by Dorothy L Sayers.
Ken Follet's Whiteout. Lee Child's latest, 61 Hours is set in South Dakota in the winter And C. Box's Joe Pickett books are set in Wyoming. I lesser known book that I thought was great is Blackwater by Kerstin Eckman. I couldn't bring it up here, but Amazon has it. I think it would lead to good group discussions as well. Both of the following are 1st mysteries in a series and very good, as well as providing winter atmospheres that are part of the story: Cold Granite by Stuart MacBride Forty Words for Sorrow by Giles Blunt.
John Straley has a mystery series set in Sitka, Alaska. Private detective Cecil Younger. Stan Jones sets his mysteries in Alaska so you can't get too much colder than that. Hi Sophie - weird, huh? I have just started both those authors and really enjoy their settings, especially in summer. I highly recommend all of her books. Both set in Iceland. Not all take place in the winter months, but those that do are very cold and piled high with snow.
Iron Lake , Krueger's first O'Connor book, might fit what you are seeking. The book is a thriller, with lots of suspense. And, as the title states, it's set in a cold climate. I'm in Florida as well and I have to say that sometimes I'd get so deep into the book that I would find myself chilled on a 90 degree day!
I really like William Kent Krueger books.
They are set in Minnesota and I love the story lines. I think you should start with his first book. It was a great read. Definitely Snow Angels by James Thompson. Takes place in Finland where it is and that is NOT wind chill factor. One of my favorite reads of the year. I finished reading Smilla's Sense of Snow which was excellent and now reading Winter Study which has started off very well. I just received in the mail Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen and really want to dive into it! I can strongly recommend Henning Mankell novels,mostly based in Sweden.
I also rate Arnaldur Indridason books based in Iceland.
Black Ice by Matt Dickinson - good thriller, set in Antarctica. It got me interested in Antarctica, so I read South , the account of Shackleton's expedition. It's non-fiction, but a good can't-put-it-down companion to any South Pole fiction. It's as tense as a lot of thrillers.
You might give a new author a try - The Eye of the Red Tsar. It takes some historical liberties, but is an entertaining read set in Russia set alternately at the time of the Tsar's fall and Stalin's rule. Some really intense descriptions of life in a Siberian work camp. Recently read Child 44 and it's set in Russia in and there is an awful lot of snow Just finished Winter Study and it was very good. Just finished Snow Angels by James Thompson. Set in Finland just before Christmas, the cold, snow and darkness play an important part in the story.
I've recently read Stan Jones ' Nathan Active series- went through them like a hot knife through butter.
Victor Methos - Book Series In Order
So now I'm wondering if anyone has any news about a 4th book in that series? Is Stan Jones working on one now? I love this topic especially since my air conditioner will not be functional for any of this hot season. Oh no! Hang in there. Reading Winter Study by Nevada Barr kept me cool for a few days. I really enjoyed Ice lake by John Farrow. I am enjoying the audio version of Alaska Justice by M. I would really love to take another trip to Alaska soon, but alas, I must limit myself to the books about and in it for the time being.
If you can find a copy, Lionel Davidson's Kolymsky Heights is a great read and set almost entirely in northern Siberia - in WINTER - and it's so well written you could swear you put on a parka to keep turning the pages! Tho probably long past the time for the book group that originally prompted this question, I'll second the recommendations for William Kent Krueger 's Iron Lake and the Em Hansen mystery which was touchstoned wrong, the correct touchstone is In Cold Pursuit by Sarah Andrews.
I really like this series. Also from Iceland, there are three mysteries by Yrsa Sigurgardottir. Her protagonist is a lawyer and, while I haven't gotten to deeply into her third yet, the first two featured some part of Icelandic history.
It's not everyday one gets to shower with hot water pumped from the earth - no water heaters! As far as a cold climate, Iceland is relatively temperate and it's not as cold there as one imagines, or let's just say, it doesn't swing so cold or so hot as it does in, say, the Northeastern US where I live.

But I guess a "cold climate" is a relative thing. P J Tracy's Monkeewrench books are set mostly in Minnesota, some of them in very cold winter. I seem to recall an ice carving contest in one?
