NEW LINKS

I seem to have mastered adding links to my blog [I hope], and now I have the updated link to Eurocrime, and new links to :

International Noir Fiction
Detectives Beyond Borders
Petrona

All four are excellent, and clearly designed to bankrupt me with their book recommendations, or have me ejected from our local library for demanding they increase the size and scope of the crime fiction department.

Thank you, I am honoured! My blogroll is unfortunately too big to fit on my blog, but Crimescraps is on it -- one click away from my "homepage".

Another good blog is It's a Crime (or a mystery)!, a Welsh blog. It will not help you make any friends at the library, goes without saying.

The link works; thanks.

You've been to Finland, have you? From what I understand, the crime-fiction scene is pretty vital up that way. I have Matti Joensuu's The Stone Murders in my to-read pile, and I raved about a short story by Pentti Kirstila in the opening post of my blog.

No one but Finns speaks or reads Finnish, which may be one reason for a scarcity of translations from Finnish and of non-Finnish readers who can read the books in the original language. Too bad; I want to read more of Kirstila to see if that one wonderful story, "Brown Eyes and Green Hair," is typical of his work. I wrote to Francois van Hurter at Bitter Lemon Press to suggest Kirstila. He said the idea sounded interesting. Maybe if some of you wrote to him, we could goose publishers and translators into action.

We went to Sweden, Finland and Denmark in succesive holidays all in the winter, and I remember that far fewer people spoke English in Finland.

The long winters, it was dark at 14.00, do help when you are writing crime books to get that atmosphere of menace.
Matti Joensuu is definitely one for my future reading plans.
Thanks.

The Stone Murders is next up on my list (I think it was published in the UK as Harjunpaa and the Stone Murders.) By the way, the links to my site and the two other you posted no longer seem to be working.

Peter, the links in the links section seem to be working. The list in the post were not links just a list as my technical expertise was not up to linking when I posted New Links.

The links on your sidebar do, in fact, work fine. I was trying to link directly from your post.
