Looking back: August 2012

Posted: September 2, 2012 in memes, Norway

I seem to be settling down on a reading speed of four books a month. In August I read The Minotaur’s Head: Marek Krajewski reviewed for Euro Crime, Disgrace: Jussi Adler-Olsen, and The Three Evangelists: Fred Vargas; but for the second month running my pick of the month is from Norway.

My pick of the month was Burned by Thomas Enger a fine debut novel with an interesting protagonist, with the author tackling difficult psychological and social problems with skill and insight.

  1. Margot Kinberg says:

    Norman – I’m very glad you enjoyed Burned. In fact I’d say you had some quality reads overall this month.

  2. Maxine says:

    Good choice, Norman.

  3. Sarah says:

    Yes good choice – I like this series too.

  4. kathy d. says:

    Very good books as always. I think my favorite August book is Anne Holt’s Blind Goddess.
