Book Sale


My husband does not read as much crime fiction as I do, but we do share some favourite authors. Yesterday he made a real bargain and came home with this gorgeous Håkan Nesser spoil. The trilogy below is his new series, featuring Gunnar Barbarotti (not translated into English yet).

I have read most of them beforehand, but not the third Barbarotti story, and I love having these great crime novels on my shelf.

Dorte - Sounds as though your husband did quite well : ). That's great! A trilogy no less! He was lucky.

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

Not yet translated into English. These are the cruelest words ever posted. Enjoy your Hakan Nessers. ;o)

Well done Dorte's husband. Two pairs of eyes are always better than one and especially when it comes to finding wonderful book bargains.

Mason Canyon sagde ...

It's always fun to find books by authors you enjoy at a bargain. Happy reading.

You lucky girl! But do you have to tease us with these books not translated into English. ;o)

Maxine sagde ...

OOOh! Lucky you, and well done to your husband. I am so wishing I could read these, but I think there will be a long wait. We are only up to no 5 (of 10) of the previous series in the UK. Sad to be a monolinguist!

Margot: it is really nice to share a hobby :D

Sorry, Norman. But I am sure you will get them by and by.

Tracy: I have told him that now you all know how well I am married :D

Mason: Thank you - the next problem will be shelves, though.

Maxine: if it was better paid work, I could translate them for you ;D
I´d better stick to teaching.

Oooh. Great find! Well done on your husband's part.

I guess it will be a long wait before I'll be able to read these.

Dorte H sagde ...

Beth: what father does ... as Andersen said ;D

I have access to the Barbarottis, but haven't read them yet. (A friend's husband has quite a few - I'll have to see if I can borrow one or two.)

There's at least one Barbarotti telemovie out there too - not half bad.

I'm not sure if I'm using my expensively acquired bilingualism for good or evil by reading crime novels, but it's certainly expanded what I have available to read!

Dorte, re: translation - I've had the same thought! (And in my current uni job, made the same career decision.)

Lauren: when I read the first Barbarotti, I did not think it was quite as good as the Van Veeteren stories, but when I had read the second, I made up my mind it was probably just because I knew Van Veeteren so well. After the second I felt more certain his new series was just as good as the old one.
