This week´s fabulous tin belongs to Julia, A Piece of my Mind.
"He had not needed to worry. When he put the can down on the grass and reached for his lighter, he had used at least half of the lighter gas, and the girls had been too busy chatting to notice anything. He was surprised that the girl´s skirt was smouldering quietly for at least fifteen seconds or more before it finally burst into flames.

"Han havde ikke behøvet at gøre sig nogen bekymringer.

A distinctly thorny one for us this time round? And in the spirit of "Bait in a box", plotwise it says exactly what it says on the tin...
Elegant clues ;)
Oh sounds like a sociopath! I'm not sure this one I've read. I'll keep watching for more clues.
Beth, do you mean the author or the perpetrator? ;)
