“Monge was on his guard. It was one of those nights when you know you have to be on the alert in these parts if you want to avoid unpleasant surprises. It was a night when you hold your breath, when anything can happen.”
I have only read forty pages yet, but I can assure you Monge had good reason to be on his guard. And as you can see, the picture is also there to tease you. Can you guess what the book is?
Saturday I should have been to Aarhus to participate in a Literary convention. I was invited in my capacity as a ´literary blogger´ (sounds good, doesn´t it?), and I was really looking forward to meeting the crime writers Elsebeth Egholm and Steen Harvig. Unfortunately I won´t be able to go as I have too much work right now. So no news report for you Sunday as planned, but perhaps next year…
An interview: please take the time to visit Christine Poulson, a writing friend I met in Bristol, who brings an interview with me today.
