If anyone else has had a nasty persistent ear-worm brought on by the title of my last post, I am sincerely sorry, and if it's any consolation, I am suffering too. It's currently being used for an advert on British television, which is probably 'inspired' me. I have no memory of what the advert is actually for, but the earworm lasts for days.
Helen, I am reading 'Voices', and have 'The Draining Lake' to come. Previously I have read 'Jar City'/'Tainted Blood' (which I then passed on), and 'Silence of the Grave'. Are there any others? "Scandinavian Detective Novel" is one of those phrases that is practically guaranteed to make me buy a book. There seem to be so many excellent writers in the Nordic countries. For all I know there are as many excellent British authors, but I haven't read a lot of modern British detective fiction. I'm much more at home in the Golden Age, with Allingham and Sayers.
