Hans Schmidt Petersen, The Snail´s House (2009)

Not translated into English (yet?), but I am sure many of you would enjoy this series. A Danish police procedural, “Sneglens hus”. A very promising debut, and I liked two aspects especially. First, even though the story deals with a … Continue reading

Sissel-Jo Gazan, Dinosaurens fjer (2008)

Jeg har læst en række meget blandede anmeldelser af denne danske krimi, men den meget langsomme antithriller var en positiv overraskelse. Biblioteksbog. Jeg nød den meget anderledes krimi, som bruger masser af tid på at udfolde hovedpersonen Annas problemer med … Continue reading
