DJ´s Bait in the Box # 52


Do you remember this novel, the first in an excellent series?

“I thought I should call you.”

“Traffic accident?”

“No, not exactly. An elderly farmer called and said his name was Nyström. Lives in Lunnarp. He claimed that the woman next door was tied up on the floor and that someone was dead.”

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 # 52.
Kan du huske romanen her, den første i en førsteklasses serie?

– Jeg syntes, jeg burde ringe til dig.

- En bilulykke?

- Nej, ikke lige det. Der var en gammel mand, der ringede, en gammel landmand, som sagde, at han hed Nyström og boede i Lenarp. Han påstod, at en nabokone sad bundet på gulvet, og at nogen var død.

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.

Ah I think I do. If it's the one I think I only read it last year. One of those Scandinavian men yes? And the book title tells us something about the murderers?

Bernadette in Australia sagde ...

Oh and funky matchbox too

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

The match box might be a clue so I think I know this one.

Dorte H sagde ...

Bernadette: yes, you are right. And it probably took some time for it to get down under :D

Norman: how clever you are. I always like when my readers realize that the box is rarely just there for decorative purposes :D

Tim sagde ...

Now I'm completely confused ... I was sure that I knew the book, but (and I realise I will lose face over this) I just can't see the connection to the matchbox.

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - Hmm.... If I'm right about this one, the author's first name has something poultry-ish about it..

Dorte H sagde ...

Tim: well; I have just returned home with my new glasses and now that I can read the tiny letters properly, I must say that I agree with Norman ;)

Margot: oh, small poultry perhaps? Your clues really make me laugh.

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams sagde ...

I think Margot's clue might have helped me this time! Think I do remember this book. It's a good one!

Elizabeth: that is great. I think all the clues are good and helpful, but Margot´s poultry idea really made me laugh (the name in question is very common in Denmark also, so I would never think twice about its components).

Jose Ignacio Escribano sagde ...

I think I know this one, although I've read it in Spanish, but I'm pretty sure that the author can communicate at least in Portuguese.

Dorte H sagde ...

Jose: I must admit that I didn´t know. What a fine clue, and it seems that you are right :D

R. T. sagde ...

Dorte, I think you've stumped me this time. Man, you're killing me with this one!

Dorte H sagde ...

RT: oh, now I feel well read!

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

That is an ace clue from Jose.

pia milwertz sagde ...

yes yes YES, I know this one. The writers initials are the same as a very well-known chain store from the same country as the writer.....

Dorte H sagde ...

Norman: there are several excellent clues this week :D

Pia: you are absolutely right! Nice that you left a clue :D
