  1. Excellent choice, José Ignacio, and thank you for the kind mention. 🙂

  2. I am so far behind on Jo Nesbo. And his books are so long. But I will get there, someday. Also behind on Philip Kerr. I am eager to read John Lawton’s newest book, and will go check out your review.

  3. Another reminder for me to read some of Kerr’s Bernie books. Lawton is another who I have never read.
