ronzo56: I'm reading a map. Trying to figure out where to park in downtown San Francisco. Not as good as the UnDutchables. May 1, 2015 23:39:27 GMT
Rabbit: That's not The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo series is it Gordon? May 2, 2015 7:55:34 GMT
solrighal: Yes Ian. I think it would be fair to say that up until two years ago I'd read maybe 50 books in my entire life. Since I bought a Kindle I've read over 300! Almost exclusively these have been in the Nordic Noir genre. Then I read the Millenium Trilogy > May 2, 2015 9:28:20 GMT
solrighal: And realized they were all I really needed to read. They more than live up to the hype, imo. May 2, 2015 9:28:52 GMT
Rabbit: Very gripping. The Norse version of the films are fantastic. May 2, 2015 11:13:19 GMT
solrighal: I haven't seen any of the films as tracking down the definitive versions is proving somewhat difficult. May 2, 2015 11:14:58 GMT
solrighal: Ben E King has died, aged 76. Stand By Me is an outstanding song! R.I.P. May 2, 2015 11:28:03 GMT
ronzo56: One of the best. May 2, 2015 11:31:26 GMT
Rabbit: Gordon ... Really gritty and nasty though .... Especially the awful scene in book 1. May 2, 2015 14:40:53 GMT *

EKbluesboy: Millenium trilogy was excellent. I really like Jo Nesbo as well. And LOVE my Kindle! May 2, 2015 15:23:18 GMT
Rabbit: The films are gripping too. Worth seeing. But not the newer version. May 2, 2015 15:32:34 GMT
Rabbit: Book thread. Kindle thread. Needle and thread. Thread and butter. It's absolutely threadful. May 2, 2015 15:33:28 GMT
EKbluesboy: Ian, you really are bonkers! May 2, 2015 15:39:26 GMT
Rabbit: Sorry ....... May 2, 2015 17:38:00 GMT
solrighal: If you like jo Nesbo then you should really check out this guy.. May 2, 2015 22:15:14 GMT

solrighal: His Detective Erlendur series is outstanding, second only to Wallander in my opinion. The Icelandic stuff is always a bit darker than even the normal Nordic Noir. May 2, 2015 22:16:37 GMT
solrighal: I've seen those versions Ian but it has to be Bluray & they messed up the transcode on the Bluray version, so I read anyway. May 2, 2015 22:18:13 GMT
Rabbit: Worth it even on dvd Gordon. They look ok on my bluray player into 55" tv. The grit in the picture helps the 'atmosphere' of the film. I think it may be a part of the filming process. May 3, 2015 6:30:39 GMT *
