Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....

Eleanor Oliphant is a delightful character. She stands on the doorstep looking in at the world and dissects everyday life with candour and an open heart. Made me laugh. Especially bus seat scanning. A lovely book.

The murder has been solved. But has justice been done? Harry Hole is back in Oslo. He's been away for some time, but his ghosts have a way of catching up with him. The case that brings him back is already closed. There is no room for doubt: The young junkie was shot dead by a fellow addict. The police don’t want him back....Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own.

This book looks deep into Harry Hole's soul. Not now a police officer. Seemingly without a conscience for the people he kills. A painful descent into the wrong side of the law. Gripping. Best read after the earlier books in the Hole series. Narration as excellent as ever.

In June 1952, a woman was murdered by an obsessive colleague in a hotel in South Kensington. Her name was Christine Granville. That she died young was perhaps unsurprising, but that she had survived the Second World War was remarkable. She was one of Britain’s most daring and highly decorated secret agents, and the intelligence she gathered was a significant contribution to the Allied war effort.

An insight into SOE activities during the Second World War through a Polish female agent working for the British. The author conveys a sense of Krystyna's own story-telling with a twist of incredulity. Stories in big landscapes of brave men and women when Europe was unstable. A good story, well written, performed with verve, enjoyable for the context - for the descriptions of Poland and life in Cairo. Highly recommended.
