This was filmed a few days ago, so in the meantime I can report that I have finished reading the Miklos Banffy book – and by now am so fully immersed in that world that I have to procure myself and read the whole trilogy. Outstanding chronicle of a certain place and time!
The others I mention below (with a lot of stuttering and pausing – maybe next time I should prepare a script) are: Ragnar Jonasson, Oliver Bottini, Thomas Willmann and the Murder on Christmas Eve anthology. You can find my full reviews of two of these on Crime Fiction Lover: Whiteout and Christmas mysteries.
I’m not signing off for the year yet, and over the coming weeks will be presenting my Top Reading Choices for 2017 and beyond. Oh, and I borrowed my younger s son’s inverted strawberry hat again – quite seasonal with the snowfall we’ve had pretty much all day here!

I *so* want to get started on the Banffy books – I have all three but just have never taken the plunge!
It took me ages to get into a steady rhythm of reading with it, but once I plunged in, it was quite quick to read.
I love the hat touch, Marina Sofia. You’ve got some interesting reads this time. I’m especially intrigued by White Out. I’ve a soft spot for those deserted places. There’s such an atmosphere in them.
It’s a great read – a sort of country house mystery with a modern twist!
I really want to read White Out, and Muder on Christmas Eve sounds fun!
You’ve made the Banffy sound so enticing. At the moment I’m going through a definite thing for novellas – maybe I’ll eventually react by going to the opposite extreme and pick it up 🙂
It is the very opposite of a novella, so you have to be in the mood for it, otherwise you might feel like a tea-bag being steeped in hot water.
I really must read the rest of the Jonasson books – I read and loved a couple, then got sidetracked. And Murder on Christmas Eve sounds like jolly festive fun… 😀
The first book really appeals to me. Shame it’s not been translated into English.
