I'd like some crime recommendations. I tend to like character crime like Stephen Cannell, Harlen Coben or humor like Janet Evanovich. Not such a big fan of hard-boiled stuff. Carl Hiassen and Lee harris don't work so well for me. Does anyone have any suggestions.

best
Marianne.

ps If you'd like some Aussie Crime recommendations in return, I'm happy to oblige.

For completeness sake, and just to correct the Liz Evans thing (I think I was channeling your character :) ):

That's because I'm an idiot - Liz Evans (sorry) :)

Karen, would you give me a link to Liz Sharp - I can't find her...

p.s. Karen, you'll have to try Sharp Shooter - see how it compares to Evanovich and Liz Sharp.

Thanks Karen and John for the suggestions. Dan, I appreciate the offer, but would prefer to read your novel when it comes out in actual book format. I seldom read Docs - my eyes complain too much.

Marianne - Liz Sharp might suit (I much prefer her humour to the Plum novels now), Vanda Symon from NZ or Karin Fossum / Karin Alvtegen from Scandinavia. Yrsa Siggurdarottir's first book was really good - I've got the second one which I must get to. For starters anyway... lots more to choose from :)

Have you tried Louise Penny's novels? They should be available in Australia.
