For this month’s release, we have another collection of short stories. As usual, some take place in France, some in Norway.
And they’re all a little weird. (Also, as usual, I think…)
What makes a mystery intriguing? Which element makes the investigators’ sixth sense rear up and say this crime will stand out in their memories forever?
Dozens of crabs pushing a man to jump from his balcony should do the trick. Or an island’s one of two inhabitants eating rat poison with his cereal. How about an octagonarian going after internet trolls? An experienced kayaker surprised by bad weather? Or a jail break creating unimaginable damage with a slight miscalculation.
This short story has actually been out a while but it’s possible I forgot to announce it here on the website… So, anyway. Another mystery short story set in Norway, in one of those remote places that I like so much.
Officer Belamy travels to a tiny island on the Norwegian coast to help clear up the murder of a French citizen.
The island offers an awful boat ride, tall, blond Norwegian police officers, and a talkative lady desperate for company.
