The Hungry Detective was pleased to take part in the twice yearly sale over at Deep Discount. Every June and November Deep Discount slashes their entire DVD catalog 20% off of what is already pretty great prices.
At the start of this year Deep Discount added books to their repertoire, and we thought we would take a flier on a few of them.
First up is Silence of the Grave by Arnaldur Indridason. We have read his first book, the highly acclaimed Jar City. A review is on the way.
Next is Borkmann's Point written by Hakan Nesser. We bought his second a few weeks ago. Plus I don't think I can afford the first book of the other Norweigen star Kjell Eriksson. THD have to be on the ground floor of something, so we are hitchin' our wagon to Hakan Nesser.
Finally, there is this year's Edgar awarding The Janissary Tree. The second book in the series is about to release in the UK and THD is, again, all about the ground floor. I'll be honest and say it was purchased on rep only as an initial scan of the plot does not immediately strike us as something we might enjoy. But we are defiantly will to give Jason Goodwin's book a whirl. Maybe not the most ringing endorsement, but it is a place to start.
