excellent news about Roger !

Thanks for the heads-up


PS Have you finished Stieg Larsson's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO?

Karen (Euro Crime) said...

Hi Ali, no I'm savouring Girl with Tattoo. I'm about 3/5ths through it and I don't want it to end :-).

Hi Karen -

I've attempted 3 books since, but I can't get Larsson's world out of my head - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is just so exquiste, I'm contemplating re-reading it over Christmas. It is a fitting winter's read, a beautiful work and scary -

Have a great Christmas with Ms. Salander
