I‘m very much hooked on this series! Sadly, not translated to the English. And, can someone tell me why there‘s a ‘the‘ in translated to the *insert language here*? I know there are many other lucky ones out there, because at least Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Finnish, Icelandic, Hungarian, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Czech and German translations exist (don‘t know if the whole series...)

Return of Sherlock Holmes | Arthur Conan Doyle

Last night in our seaside holiday cottage. There‘s a wind raging outside but we‘re cosy and warm and trying to solve the case of the Mysterious Murderer. It might take a while! 🤣

DGRachel Sounds like a perfect evening! 2w
Texreader Whoa what is this?? It looks so cool! 2w
Mitch @Texreader it‘s a fab game. You work as a team to read a mystery and then decide what clues to gather and what info you need in order to solve the crime. It‘s a great family game as you play as one unit. We love it! 2w
Texreader @Mitch sounds amazing! I‘m going to have to look into it! 2w
JaneyWaneyB Oh wow that looks like a brilliant game and you have the sound effects to go with it 🌬 2w

Pickpick

I enjoy the writing style, the flawed characters, the atmosphere in the small town, everything. This wasn‘t an easy read with domestic violence, murders and sickness. I still feel it‘s important to read about these subjects. A woman is missing, her husband is worried sick, women are getting raped, what is going on? It started off a bit slowly, but got better and better. A side plot annoyed me a bit, felt purposeless, but overall enjoyable 🌠🌠🌠🌠

Murder, She Wrote: Manuscript for Murder | Jessica Fletcher, Jon Land
post image

Adding a fun and easy challenge for everyone who reads crime and mystery. Every time at least one person is murdered in a book you add it #Murder2020 For example, I have read 4 books this year, and all 4 have had at least one murder in them, which means I‘m at 4/4. Feel free to join! At least @Andrew65 @EadieB are with me. I‘m interested in seeing how many of the books we all read have at least one murder in the plot!

Tove_Reads I challenge myself to read at least 100 books with a murder in 2020! 4w
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads I‘m sure you‘ll get to 150! 4w
Tove_Reads @andrew65 Could be, but I read a lot of nonfiction, wildlife, read the world etc books, so I hope I will have less murders than I think 😅 4w

TrishB @suzie.reads you read a lot of murder series too if you want to join in! 4w
Marina_h Sounds like a fun challenge. I'm setting a slightly lower goal: 40 books with a murder. 4w
MidnightBookGirl I love this! Now I have to check how many murders happened in You Are Not Alone and In the Hall with the Knife and Dead Voices... hmmm. 4w
Tove_Reads @MidnightBookGirl You can count those as well, but one murder per book counts! 4w
Tove_Reads @Marina_h 40 sounds good! 4w
suzie.reads @TrishB thank you this sounds fun! I've read two books so far with multiple murders in 😂 I reckon out of the 180+ books I read last year well over 150 had murder in 😏 4w
eanderson I‘m afraid to commit to a high amount of books. My goal is to read 50 books this year and I feel like I may read at least 40 that are murder related. 🤔 Having a Criminal Justice degree puts a huge target on me as a sucker for police procedurals, murder mystery, and suspense/thrillers. 4w
julesG Cool challenge! I'm not sure how many I should pledge. I'm going with a tentative 25 murder victims. Do non-fiction books count? 4w
gradcat @Tove_Reads Okay, never mind all my questions from another post...I just found this one, so count me in! ♥️ 🔪 💉🩸 3w

Fab games night tonight with this new game - you get a map, directory, access to experts and a whole book of clues and you work as a team to try to solve a crime. It was a fab game for 2 as you work together and puzzle it out! Box comes with 10 stories to solve - it took us the whole night to do the first one!

Blaire Sounds fun! 1mo
Chrissyreadit Ohhh! I think we would love this! 1mo

Maigret Gets Angry | Georges Simenon

Onto my next Maigret, this one was published in 1947 and is book 26 in the series.

Bookwomble I had a "summer of Maigret" this year - great reading ??‍♂️?? 2mo
Andrew65 @Bookwomble On.y just discovered him and really enjoying them. 2mo
Bookwomble @Andrew65 I've known the character for years through TV adaptations, but only started on the books this year. I remember as a child my nana asking me to get them for her from the mobile library that used to visit our neighbourhood, so I guess I've had them on my radar a long time! 2mo
