--A while back, I thought of reminding people of Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. The Martin Beck books were among the best I have read over the years. But now I don't have to do it. Declan Burke has done it on Crime Always Pays. Here's the link.
--To what extent do you agree with this list of The Fifty Greatest Crime Writers of All Time? I stumbled on it in my meandering around the Web.
--Kwei Quartey's Wife of the Gods is as good to read as the reviews have said it is. I am about half way through. I'll tell you a bit more about it when I finish in a day or two.
--My writings on the blog are shorter now because I am back to my own writing. Writing is a roller coaster experience for someone of my emotional makeup. It is still the most satisfying thing I do.
