19126 David Hewsons The Killing is an exceptional book. I did not watch the TV series so cannot compare the two. You will not be disappointed with the book, it is well written and provides a greater depth to the lead characters.

19126 I have just finished The Snowmanby Jo Nesbo. I have only recently discovered this author and I am so glad that I did. I am loving Harry Hole, he is beautifully flawed- the best kind of detective. I cant wait to get the Leopard now, will keep you updated

19126 I have just finished reading Dead Ringerby Lisa Scottoline. Really liked this book, her characters are witty, feisty females. The dialogue is sharp and funny. I recommend this heartily

I love the Ariana Franklin books, completly adore Rowley. I was very sorry to hear the Diana had died on a human level, a little bit of me was very upset because there is no more Adelia, etc. I also love the Bartholomew series by Phillipa Gregory.

19126 I have a question: In what way do male crime writers differ in style from female writers. I had a very animated discussion with my father on this subject. His opinion is that men write crime/mysteries with less detail and back story than women do. I feel that women put more background into their characters, not particularly talking romance, and they are more rounded. Can anyone offer an opinion on either of these arguments?

I really hate that when you cant recognise a reference the character makes and you need to go back and find it. So irritating!
19126 I used to read Stephen King et al when I was younger, but now I have kids I cannot read or even watch scary things. Must be old age, lol
