Bond in Motion @ London Film Museum

The London Film Museum is around the corner from Covent Garden on Wellington Street and has a boxed-in basement feel, but the exhibition team did a marvellous job of displaying the various iconic Bond vehicles, accessories, video screens and artwork. I was so happy to have stumbled across this exhibition on a night out with friends […]

Cockroaches – Jo Nesbo

15 years after its original publication in Norwegian, “Cockroaches” was published in the UK in time for fans’ Christmas wish lists in 2013. I was given it by a very friendly chap at my hotel in Skiathos, but put off reading it until I could read “The Bat” – subject of a previous post. “Cockroaches” […]

We […]

Today I released my eighth novel. There has to come a point where your willing to release the bird you’ve been nurturing from when it pecked its way out of its egg; throw the thing up in the air and see if it flies. There’s only so much rewriting I can take. I went through the usual test […]

The Bat – Jo Nesbo

This is hardly a masterpiece of modern thriller writing but I thought it was okay as a debut novel. ‘The Bat’ introduced the character of Norwegian detective Harry Hole to the world, or at least it would have had it been published worldwide in 1997. As it happens it took until 2012 for this to […]
