It is a great read Annabel - I’m sure you’ll love it.

Izzy I think it would be a perfect way to you. Enjoy!
Yes the Swedes appear to drink gallons of coffee in these novels and other scandi noir ones I’ve read. It doesn’t suit Martin Beck but he drinks it anyway! I’ve read ad enjoyed The Laughing Policeman too
It’s certainly a great series Kay - glad to hear you are in agreement.
Great to have a whole set Kaggsy - I’ve only read them piecemeal. Reading this certainly whetted my appetite for more!
Glad to find another admirer. They are novels that definitely can stand re-reading.
They are excellent novels Simon - well worth a read.
Yes I saw your review and that was what encouraged me to read it.
Excellent idea - I'm in. Only problem is what to read - all I've read so far is Kingdoms of Elfin and another short story collection, both of which I absolutely loved. But I'd like to embark on at least one novel - which one(s) though?
It is excellent - hope you get a chance to read it soon

Shame you didn’t enjoy it Helen.
It’s a lot of fun Simon - hope you read and enjoy it
It’s certainly a good one, Joan.
They are indeed. This one is great fun.
Well spotted, Susan. I noticed all the green but didn't make the link. Fortuitous.

Yes Annabel - he’s brilliant. You won’t regret it.
Thanks. I didn’t know that about paying annually. Well worth looking into.
I got excited by your review and rushed over to Amazon where I found it was reduced on kindle (£3 instead of 8.99) so I've bought it.

I'm excited about the book and impressed that you find time to write with everything else you do. Good luck with it.

I saw a production of Hassan when I was about 13. It made a deep impression on me. I remember this bit: At the ending of the day Some to Mecca turn to pray And I towards thy bed, Yasmin. Something like that anyway. I'd hate to have to wash a hen's bottom/

Interesting, Nicola. I’ve read a lot by Scott but never anything by Zelda. Just about to start today!

Izzy I don’t remember reading The Daffoldil Case but the other two are excellent. I’ve loved all the Shardlakes- can’t choose a favourite!

Thanks Liz. I used to write so regularly on the blog and do so much less now. Admire your frequency of posting!
