DJ´s Bait in the Box # 35

[This charming tin belongs to Elizabeth, Thoughts from an Evil Overlord]

The first in a not quite new British series which was made into a TV series some years ago.

“Minor who has run away from home?” Anna asked resignedly.
“Not so fast, young lady,” Brierly said reproachfully. “No, actually it is not a minor. The daughter in question was 22, and has not disappeared but is dead. And she has been so for a month. She had a car accident late one night and hit a concrete column. At Cranford Lane, near the airport.”

The Rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Friday as usual.

Gæt en bog # 35.
Den første i en ikke helt ny britisk serie, som blev oversat til dansk og endda vist på dansk TV for nogle år siden.

”Mindreårig der er løbet hjemmefra?” spurgte Anna resigneret.
”Nu ikke så hurtig, unge dame,” sagde Brierly bebrejdende. ”Nej, rent faktisk er der ikke nogen mindreårig. Den datter, det drejer sig om, var 22, og er ikke forsvundet, men død. Og det har hun været en måned. Hun kørte galt en sen aften og ramte en betonpille. På Cranford Lane, ude ved lufthavnen.”

Reglerne:
Hvis du kan genkende citatet, eller hvis du tror du kan gætte hvem forfatteren er, så læg venligst en kommentar. Skriv bare et hint til nye besøgende, lad være med at ødelægge fornøjelsen for andre. Bogen bliver anmeldt på fredag som sædvanlig.

I suspect a nominal connection with one of the legendary figures of the American Old West.

Karen (Euro Crime) sagde ...

The author has a French sounding surname? Not sure of the title though.

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

I have dredged this information from the deep recesses of my failing memory [and googled to confirm] the connection with bison?

Elizabeth Spann Craig sagde ...

I swear I read lots of crime fiction, but I'm becoming notoriously bad at this game! :) Maybe visiting 'Thoughts from an Evil Overlord" will give me a clue...

Philip: absolutely right.

Karen: I don´t think you would see this name as French

Uriah: yes, I can see that.

Elizabeth: it might, but she is not nearly as criminal as she sounds.
