sock puppet spamming your book 5 times isn't very thrilling

Just finished They Die Alone by Christopher Bartley. Excellent! I read it in two nights and loved it. Set in 1930s Chicago and he does a magnificent job of setting, mood, character development.

I just finished

Suspect by Robert Crais

The "heroine" Maggie is wonderful and unusual.
I've not read this author before, but it won't be the last.
Expensive but well worth it in my opinion.

I'm trying to save money by using the library, and, so far, I've had problems getting a copy of "The Blackhouse". However, after reading your recommendation, I think I will try again.

Thank you

I've recently finished a few worth commenting on: The Blackhouse by Peter May is the first of the "Lewis" trilogy, taking place on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (north of the Scottish mainland). Yes, it's as bleak as one might imagine, but well worth the read. Unfortunately, The Lewis Man, #2 in the series, is thus far unavailable on ebooks.
I was disappointed in "In the Woods" by Tana French. I don't want to sound chauvinistic, but the male protagonist wasn't portrayed well--and I think it was Tana's gender that interfered. The second in the Dublin Murder Squad books, The Likeness, had a female protagonist, and I thought it was better all around. However, to refute my own theory, the male protagonist in the third book, Faithful Place, which I've just begun, is written far more believably. So...maybe I just prefer the latter two books to the one that got Tana an Edgar for Best First Novel.

The Swedish version of the 2nd and 3rd are available. They are both excellent.

Not sure if anyone is interested - but quite a few excellent books - mystery and thriller on offer at reduced prices.

Yes, the Swedish actress was much more effective than the American woman. Also, it was helpful not really knowing the Swedish actors. It was kind of off putting with Captain Van Trapp and James Bond in the leading parts of the millionaire and the reporter.

I would love to see the other films. I know the second one was released here, but I don't remember seeing the third one.

Any read or reading Shattered (Donna Harp Series) by Karl Jones? I've just downloaded a sample. Looks gruesome - lovely! :)

All three were done in Swedish. Comparing the English/Swedish first books, I thought while the Eng was good, the Swedish was excellent. The last two are great as well. The main difference was the Swedish actress--she was riveting.

I wish someone would film the second and third book of Tattoo. I saw the first one is Swedish and English and they were both good.

The best five thrillers that have graced my eyes in the last twelve months

Child 44
The Devil May Care
Meaning Of Theft
SweetHeart
And I have to say - I re-read 'The Dragon Tattoo' series and loved them again!

I read one of Indridason's books entitled "Operation Napoleon" which I liked but which I don't believe did very well. It was my first Icelandic book and I found it very interesting. It was about a WWII plane which crashed and was buried in the snows. It finally became exposed and whole teams of spies were intent on finding it and revealing its secrets. Very interesting and very mysterious.

I don't mind little asides, but these were turning into full scale conversations which went back and forth tying up the discussion site.

@ Patricia,

The Paris Lawyer

This was a recommendation on the MLC thread after I read The 7th Victim if you are interested.

Patricia----- I can understand that when a Kindle version is the only way to read a book it can be aggravating.

You mentioned a Fire and it reminded me of something I just read about that on Project Gutenberg. (A bit off topic, but still about books!)

http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenberg:Kindle_Fire_Review

Most people won't find that review pertinent to their needs, since PG only has free eBooks that have lost their copyright. But I have downloaded The Woman in White and a couple of other 'old' mysteries from PG.

Just a 'heads up' for a small sub-set of people.

@Patricia - I've got House of Evidence on pre order ATM

Have you read any books by Arnuldur Indridason by any chance
Silence of the Grave

I'm reading The Death of a Mantis on my Kindle now. It's by Michael Stanley (which is actually two men) and I really like it. It takes place in Botswana in modern times and I appreciate reading a story that doesn't sink to stereotypical depictions about Southern Africa. Just people doing their jobs in a foreign (to me) country.

Death of the Mantis: A Detective Kubu Mystery (Detective Kubu Series)

Patricia---- I'm very tolerant of 'asides' by people in this type of forum---- actually like it because it makes them more human to hear that they might actually like fruitcake! (grin) But the group devolved into being a chat room for a few people. I think your assessment was kinder than mine.
