What a scandi-noir treat for the ears!

Alexander McCall Smith’s 3rd instalment of the Scandinavian-Noir genre did not disappoint. I’ve always found his writing style and plots so reassuring. The Talented Mr Varg was no exception, investigations into crimes of the sensitive nature make for light hearted and enjoyable reading. Particularly enjoyed Ulf teaming up with Blomkvist, their characters individual foibles complement each other brilliantly!

Perfect antidote to lock-down

Another excursion into the gentle humour of the whimsical world of Detective Varg and his hearing impaired, lip reading dog, Martin. Beautifully read by Saul Reichlin, it is the perfect antidote to the doom and gloom of the current Coronavirus lock-down.
