Table of contents

I have also tried a few Barnaby novels because I like the TV series so much, but the two Danish books I have read struck me as boring and not at all well-written. Dorte - I know what you mean about translations. I hope it was just that perhaps because I like the Barnaby novels very much :.

I'll be interested to hear what you think when you get the chance to try one in English. I'm not familiar with this series, Dorte I'll have to look for it. I'll find the book, thanks.

A Guide to Cozy Mystery (and Other Favorite) Books, Movies, and TV

Elizabeth Mystery Writing is Murder. Dorte I haven't read any of the books [very remiss of me] but the TV series was very good as it was set in the beautiful SW of England. The fictional Wycliffe was a member of the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, and the real life police Detective Superintendent who was the script adviser for the program was a patient of mine. I read a lot of these in the s and enjoyed them very much. I think you might be able to get a DVD box set cheap on Amazon, so will check it out.

When would I have time to watch it, though? I have almost made up my mind to try some more. Maxine: I have considered buying them. Or more precisely, my husband has. But he is not certain he will get enough out of it without Danish subtitles. Jack Shepherd was a great protagonist.

Despite being a Wycliffe fan, it's a very, very long time since I read this one. Glad you enjoyed it. Pardon me for saying this, but the title alone is sufficient provocation to make this a "must read" addition to almost anyone's reading list. Thanks for sharing it. My very young daughter read it, but I think she saw the title as a bit embarrassing :D It also made me curious. First, the cover I'm shallow is love at first sight! But this does sound like a must read. I'm not buying any new books this month, but come March! Beth: I thought you would like this one.

Very British! I remember seeing the TV series. A search on dansih libraries came out negative. Not one book, in danish og british, by J.

Lots of the on Amazon, UK, so that should not proove a problem. Found the author's home page, and found it very interesting, especially by learning that Burley's was a great admirer og Simenon's Maigret and very highly inspired by the books. Read all about it! Hi Palle. I cannot edit comments, only publish or reject them. I am glad you found Burley. If you like traditional British crime, you should also enjoy this one. I think I've got them all. Books, that is. And I was obsessed with the television series, and still have many episodes on video. How old-fashioned is that?

Ann: As you have them all, I suppose he keeps up the promises of the first? I really must order some more. If I had any of the television episodes on video, I would certainly keep them. The only problem is that someone has thrown away my list of what is on them so it is like buying a lottery ticket :O. I finally got around to reading this one, Dorte. Thanks for the pointer, I think it's wonderful. I was surprised to see that it was written in - often books from that era are dated, but this one doesn't suffer from that at all.

Nice psychological side to it too. Send en kommentar. Burley, Wycliffe and the Three-Toed Pussy This British police procedural is the first of twenty two about Superintendent Wycliffe. She was young and seemingly popular, at least among the male population.

Soon one of her lovers is suspected of the crime because he was around and owned the murder weapon. Wycliffe arrests him but doubts that the case can be so simple as it seems that Pussy actually suspected she would die. A well-planned plot which may truly be called a puzzle. As the first one was written in my remote childhood, we are not told much about his private life, yet he comes across as an interesting person.

I think any lover of traditional, British police procedurals with a strong sense of place will enjoy this Cornish series, and I am strongly tempted to buy them all. Indsendt af Dorte H kl.

W. J. Burley

The Game's Afoot. He soon finds that she had a reputation as something of a man-eater, resulting in a multitude of suspects all with credible reasons for wanting her dead, but no-one coming forward to make them clear.

A further layer of complexity is added when it becomes clear that Pussy was expecting to die and had left behind a series of pointers for the police to find. I expected to like this a lot more than I did. If I were to point out anything that really stopped me from liking Wycliffe and the Three-Toed Pussy , then it would probably be that it didn't really feel much like your average crime novel. Firstly, Wycliffe doesn't make a huge deal of sense as the main detective as he is too much of an introvert. Being an introvert is not in and of itself a barrier to being a good literary detective, as my favourite Sherlock Holmes can easily attest to, but Wycliffe seemed to take it too far.

In the entirety of the novel, there is only one other police officer that he interacts with directly, and every one of those encounters is characterised by being antagonistic and rarely all that enlightening as regards the details of the mystery. Additionally, his style of investigation is peculiarly languid, more a matter of pestering the other residents of the village for gossip until it matches up with the physical evidence that his underlings collect on his behalf.

It just didn't sit right with me at all. I could probably have forgiven it if the suspects were at all interesting. But no, every couple involved consisted of a henpecked, cheating husband and a wife who somehow didn't meet the standards that would make her a "proper woman". Even the gay couple, referred to unflatteringly as the queers, was made up of a screaming queen and yet another henpecked husband.

Honestly, the only interesting one was Dampiers, a children's author who keeps to himself due to having a hunchback, but even that is ruined when the book decides that deformity or disability must equal mental instability which must thus equal EVIL.
