Googled... and it's a good suggestion! thumbsup.gif Though I'd like a more classic one...

P.S. Damn Charlie! Jo Nesbø was born 29th March as opposed to my 30th... moreover his 60 to my 90!!! Conspiracy?! biggrin.gif

You have a lot of catching up to do. There are 11 books in the series.

Recently, a film adaption of the 7th book - The Snowman - was released.

I'll watch it, but I hear that it's not good.

Moreover, Charlie, I prefer and can stand only paper books... They have souls, you know! Hate those devices! Yeah, a little retro here but if it's for a book I think I'm right...

I hear you. I also prefer books. I just get impatient waiting for them from my library.

It's easier just to find a pirate site and download them. wink.gif

How does the first book's name sound in English? 'Cause in Russian it sounds like a flying mouse... laugh.gif

Close enough. The English translation is 'The Bat'.

When reading, just be prepared for Batman to appear and save the day.
