Back from Harrogate

Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writings Festival in Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK, is over. What an exciting experience! Thanks to the organisation team for a great festival - well, and very warm wishes to the Crown's hotel manager. We will come back, like it or don't ;-)

Very good interview with Colin Cotterill. I loved all of his Dr. Siri books, one of the few authors whose books I buy hot off the press.
And yes, I do believe there are many places and time periods and cultures that have not been explored in mystery. And I agree with him that his books are more mystery than crime fiction, and I would still call them cozies.
I do not agree with him about elder protagonists. He isn't keeping up with the latest series of older, retired protagonists in mystery and I think he forgot about Miss Marple. And his comment about a dead protagonist, again, he isn't keeping up.

Hi Lars
I'm also a big fan of A Fish Called Wanda and The Big Lebowski, which I watched again just the other night. I hope to make your favorite author list someday too.

Hello Lars - quite a coincidence to find you here as Krimi was mentioned on the weekend ... Garry Disher was a speaker at the first ever Crime and Justice Festival here in Melbourne.
