Book review: The Golden Cage by Camilla Läckberg

The long Easter weekend provided some nice time for reading, so I read this book within 24 hours . 🙂 When I noticed a new book is coming from the Swedish crime writer Camilla Läckberg, I immediately pre-ordered the Finnish translation to be able get my hands on it right away, as the English translation is still to be released.

Heidän raivonsa oli hänen raivoaan. Ja hänen raivonsa oli heidän raivoaan.

Translation: Their rage was her rage. And her rage was their rage.
Finnish translation of The Golden Cage

Camilla Läckberg takes on a new territory with The Golden Cage with a new, more bold main character and a darker setting. Did I enjoy this book more than her long Fjällbacka series? Nope, but I still devoured it!

The ice and snow is almost gone!

I’m obviously still not allowed to do much with my my feet still recovering, but I did do small things kinda outside during the weekend which felt really nice.

Book Review: Dead Man’s Folly by Agatha Christie

This time I listened to Dead Man’s Folly as an Audible audio book and read by David Suchet himself in Poirot’s voice that he does so wonderfully.
I have yet to meet a person who dislikes Agatha Christie’s work or who wouldn’t have enjoyed David Suchet’s long career as the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

I mean, what can you say about how you write your books? What I mean is, first you’ve got to think of something, and then when you’ve thought of it you’ve got to force yourself to sit down and write it. That’s all.

Quote by Ariadne Oliver. As someone who loves and struggles with writing, gotta love that quote in this story. 🙂

I’m so happy that there are so many more Poirot stories available as audio books, narrated by David Suchet, as the format works really well.
