Crime fiction

This  post only in English/Detta inlägg bara på engelska/Questo post solo in lingua inglese.


Elly Griffiths is one of my absolute favorites in crime fiction. She’s mostly known for her books about forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway but she has also written 3 books with Stephens/ Mephisto as main characters. 

I have just finished reading the novel Bloodcard where detective Stephens and magician Mephisto are facing serious troubles on the coronation day of queen Elizabeth

The next book about Ruth Galloway , The Chalk Pit will be released next year. While waiting for that one I shall read the Italian Quarter written under her real name Domenica de Rosa.

Only one week to Christmas Eve and we are looking forward to spend it at our house together with our daughter and her family. For our granddaughter ,aged 5, Christmas is absolutely magic and I think she’s going to spread that spell to all of us. 


Una settimana per andare fino a Natale. Celebreremo il Natale a casa nostra insieme con la nostra figlia, il nostro genero  e  la nostra nipote. 


Bara en vecka kvar till julafton och vi längtar efter att få träffa dottern med familj. Vi har åkt på en rejäl förkylning. Jag har återhämtat mig men hustrun har fortfarande hög feber. Så vi ligger efter med julförberedelserna vilket vi bara får acceptera. Trots allt så är det viktigaste att vi få vara tillsammans.
