Looks like people who frequent Hennepin County libraries are loyal to the locals: The top three books checked out in 2012 were, in order: “Kill Shot: An American Assassin Thriller” by Vince Flynn, “Stolen Prey” by John Sandford, and “Shock Wave,” also by Sandford. So there, “Fifty Shades of Grey” (no. 7).

In the top-25 list, Sandford scored a third title, “Buried Prey,” at no. 19. William Kent Krueger of St. Paul also made the list with “Northwest Angle” at no. 20.
