YRSA SIGURDARDOTTIR, is an Icelandic writer, of both crime-novels and children fiction.
I met her, as well as other crime writers, tonight at a meeting arranged by the publisher.
Her books have been translated in to 34 languages.
So this is the book I will start reading as soon as I have finished the book I am currently reading.
What are YOU reading at the moment?

How lovely you caught the author. I'm about to embark on a mystery/crime novel (a Christmas gift:) "Death Comes to Pemberley" by PD James.

A biography of Catherine the Great. Will look for Sigurdardottir's work in English. Thanks for the tip.

I love some of the Scandinavian mystery writers. I sometimes have trouble keeping the characters straight because the names are so different than what we Anglophiles are accustomed to. Right now I'm reading The Litigators by John Grisham.

A great portrait you made of the author.

I just finished a book called Abused. A very interesting non-fictional account of foster parenting in the UK. Must be fun to meet the author of something you're going to read!

I'm reading Henning Mankell's novel, "The Fifth Woman."

I like a good crime novel, and look forward to finding her novels in English. I'm currently re-reading "From Here To Eternity" by James Jones.

The biography of Jackson Pollock by Deborah Solomon.

A troubled man who seemed who was at his best when he stayed away from alcohol.
