Arnaldur Indridason's Voices has been won with one of the fastest replies I have had to a quiz question. This is a salutary lesson and I will need to do some serious work to make the Quirky Quiz more convoluted and difficult.
Thanks to those who fired their answers in so quickly last night and I am sorry there could be only one winner.
The winner from Canada came in 1 hour 26 minutes ahead of the USA, with a very worthy third place entry from Italy 11 minutes back. Better luck next time.
What is the connection between 4,12,50 and 200 miles; Gadhus morhua and a British supermarket chain specializing in frozen food?
The answer of course is:
Gadhus Morhua is the Atlantic Cod, and that fish was at the heart of the fishing wars between Iceland and Britain, in the course of which Iceland -- in 1958, 1972 and 1975 -- tried progressively to extend its fishing limits from 4 to 12 to 50 to 200 miles. And the name of that supermarket is 'Iceland'.
