Having been a bit distracted in the Ian Fleming Panel by the gorgeously American accent of Meg Gardiner, all Santa Barbara and California sun, I went to Big Bellies-Crime Writers Chew The Fat.

This was a real fun panel excellently moderated by the very attractive Donna Moore, who kept the less attractive guys [Tony Black, Chris Ewan, Allan Guthrie and Martyn Waites] in order and had obviously spent a lot of time preparing for her role. 

Next on the program was Ann Cleeves brilliantly interviewing Karin Fossum, a highlight of the day for me [apart from meeting the blogging gang of course] and a reminder of why I like Scandinavian crime fiction. 

Karin seemed a lovely lady and gave us some rare insights into her devotion to her craft, and her love of small town communities in Norway. 

To be continued....

Ann did a fantastic job on that interview and on the later panel Crime in Translation.

Neither Donna you can't argue with the truth, and I did have my correct spectacles on. ;o)
Thanks for visiting Crime Scraps.
