WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Really interesting to read the godparents of Scandi-noir. One of the primary ways Scandi-noir differs from English crime (imo) is the cast of characters - Scandi thrillers tend to have a team of detectives with a lead character, and classic English thrillers tend to have one super detective, amateur or not.

Anyway, The Laughing Policeman is pretty bleak and frustrating - that last chapter got me a bit cross! It's a pretty slow procedural, but I really couldn't put it down.

To be released at the August York Bookcrossing meetup.
