Sent by mail and hope it will make it to the convention.
This book arrived safely in Wellington and will be a delightful "find" for someone at the Convention. Karin Fossum is a very favourite new author to me - I actually received a copy of this book last Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed it. I really like books by Scandinavian authors - there is a refreshing difference about them that makes a welcome change. As with Hemming Mankell, Fossum books are a huge temptation to me when browsing in bookshops trying not to be tempted but always succumbing for those two.
Thank you very much Tuttasb for thinking of us. Much appreciated.
Passed on to me at the convention by Sherlockfan - how exciting to get a book all the way from Norway!
A strange book. I wasn't sure at first whether I was going to enjoy it - I was having trouble connecting with the characters, and the plot seemed like it was going to be obvious. But then as I read on, it began to grab me more, and I began to appreciate the picture the author was painting of the psychological motives of the characters. And then the plot began to twist, and things got much more interesting. So after an unpromising start, it turned out to be a book worth persevering with.
Plus it was cool to read a book set in Norway. I visited Norway for a couple of days while I was living in Britain (on a weekend trip with some friends), so it was interesting to compare everyday life (well, maybe not everyday, considering the subject matter of the book!) there with my brief tourist's impression.
Was given to me to read by FutureCat
Decided that it has lingered too long on the staff bookshelf and will be send to a friend.
