You might like Dennis Lehane's books too.  I read a couple of his on a recommendation ("stand alones") but then discovered he'd written a series about a couple of private investigators "Kenzie and Gennaro) which I really enjoyed.  Just found another stand alone which I'd not come across so looking forward to starting that.

Never read Karen Rose so far but very much like most of Tess Gerritsen.  Which Lehane did you borrow?

That's not one I've read yet.  Shutter Island is good (they made a film of it which I haven't seen) but I still like the Kenzie and Gennaro series best - first book is "A drink before the war"

A very different role for Idris Elba in 'Luther'. In 'The Wire' (which I loved) he was a hard-nut gangster.
We're glued to 'Borgen' the latest Danish thriller on Sat nights.

Wow, episode one last night was amazing. It has rave reviews in the papers today. It certainly reminded me of my younger days  ::)
The way they acted out the tension was electrifying, award winning i would say. I can't wait for the second and final installment.
Then I am going to find the book, I would love to read it. I see the bbc didn't baulk at the cruder aspects of the novel, unlike when Jaws was made in 1977  ;D  I read Jaws for my O level English, in the fourth year at school. I never did understand the police chiefs wifes fantasys until I was much much older  ;)
If it sounds too good to be true,it probably is!
