Kjøpt på loppemarked - 9 bøker for hundre kroner =)

Fra baksiden:

"When Commissario Guido Brunetti is visited by a young bureaucrat investigating the lack of official approval for the building of his apartement years before, his first reaction, like any other Venetian, is to think of whom he knows who might bring pressure to bear on the relevant government department. But when the bureaucrat rings Brunetti at work, clearly scared, and is then found dead after a fall from scaffolding, something is clearly going on that has implications greater than the fate of Brunetti's own apartement..."

Spennende om korrupsjon og narkotika i Venezia. Godt driv fremover i plottet uten at det ble masete dramatisk. Beskrivelsene av Venezia er fantastiske; jeg liker Brunetti veldig godt, kanskje særlig fordi han faktisk har det bra, i motsetning til mange andre krim-helter, som plages av alkoholisme, kjærlighetsproblemer, jobbkonflikter, osv. Forøvrig var det morsomt at Brunettis kone og datter leser bøkene om Jack Aubrey og Stephen Maturin av Patrick O'Brien, som er noen av mine egne favorittbøker =)

Boken lå i postkassen i dag og ventet på meg. Tusen takk, Findabair! Gleder meg til å lese denne, men det kan ta noe tid før jeg får startet på den da mitt Mount TBR er høyt for tiden.

Finished the book yesterday on the plane home from summer vacation. I liked it very much. The author gives a good description of Venice, and I am now tempted to go there!

Journal Entry 8 by mirthful from Trondheim, Sør-Trøndelag fylke Norway on Sunday, October 01, 2006
An enjoyable crime story from Venetia... If the description of "how things work" in the city are accurate, and I don't really have reason to believe otherwise, I'm sure glad I don't live there. I'd love to visit, though.

Just like Findabair I found it higly entertaining that Chiara is reading O'Brian (and that her mother loved the books) - I've been feeling an O'Brian reread coming up, though it's not that long since the last time...

Incidentally, this turned up in the zone a while back - 4 weeks ago seems about right - then disappeared for a week or two, and then reappeared a few days ago, so it seems "Anonymous Finder" has been reading without leaving his/her mark... Nothing to be done about it, and I'll probably return this to the zone in any case.
