If you are looking for new genres of mystery thrillers, here are three I really like:

Scandinavian murder mysteries: The atmosphere is dark and bleak; so are the solutions. Just search on this term and you will find a plethora of authors.

American West murder mysteries: There are two authors we love: Craig Johnson and CJ Box. They both have heroes who are actively in the foress of Wyoming and Montana. Longmire, the hero for Johnson, is also a TV series, but the books are different ...deeper. CJ Box's hero is a park ranger in Wyoming, but not for wildlife.
A third is an individual, Donna Leon. She write about a policeman in Venice. May be a different one for you, but she's VERY good and the crimes are resolved in quite differ went and humane ways.
