Thanks to the encyclopedic Karen at Euro Crime for the information that on Saturday 11 December at 9.00pm we will get a chance to see Rolf Lassgard as Kurt Wallander in the original 2001 SVT series.

Unfortunately we won’t see this episode, but this short clip gives me the idea that this Swedish version might be better than the Branagh version.

I had to laugh when after reading Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise [I must not mention the cricket ;o)] I went over to A Novel Challenge to find the latest post was about a US Civil War Challenge!

I think I will give this one a miss on the grounds that Mrs Crime Scraps, has accompanied me [translation ‘been dragged round’] on five trips to a number of Civil War related sites, and thinks I have already read every book ever written on the subject.
I still haven’t forgotten that someone put a Quilt Museum at Paducah KY on the route between the Lincoln Boyhood Home in Southern Indiana, and Shiloh.
How much time can you spend looking at quilts! A lot!!
