This week starts the run up to the end of the school year, testing, trips and planning for camp. It is a time to keep calm and remember to breath..
April was a slow reading month for me, I spent many hours with Agaat, others catching up on War and Peace and also read two chunky science fiction novels. Now I am reading Who Fears Death for Once Upon A Time V and am excited to start The Last Crossing for the Hop-A-Long, Get-A-Long, Read-A-Long Challenge.
Last night Mr G and I indulged in take-out Thai food and a video I picked up at the library. We both have a soft spot for lonely, overly introspective homicide detectives from Europe and the UK. If you have a place in your heart for such characters please check out the Masterpiece Mystery series Wallander, based on the novels by Henning Mankell. Kenneth Branagh plays Wallander and is, well, Kenneth Branagh. The series was shot in Ystad, Sweden, where the novels take place. Dark, dreary and stunningly beautiful. The only thing that is a bit off is hearing British accents from Swedish characters, but for me the acting and atmosphere more than made up for it. Mankell claims he has written the last book in the series, The Troubled Man. I have it on hold at the library.
Have a wonderful week!
