Coming to the end of The Draco Tavern by Larry Niven... I love Niven!

That's good stuff. I've read several of them in Analog or Asimov's or wherever they first appeared, but I need to read the complete collection.

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. I figured that it was about time to enter the "real" world depicted in the TV series. I am not disappointed!

The War Of The Worlds by HG Wells (free on Kindle). About time I went to the source, I suppose.

The Deed of Paksenarion by Elizabeth Moon.

If you like fantasy you should give this one a try. These were the books that got me into reading in the first place. It's about a woman who joins a mercenary army. It's got loads of cool stuff. Dwarves, axes, elves and bad people. Instead of the now popular intrigue, affair, drama, soapy fantasy.. this one actually is fantasy and focuses on life as a warrior.

I am currently reading the latest Karin Fossum book to be translated into English - I Can See in the Dark. I am four chapters in and it looks like her main character, Riktor, is going to equal some of her characters in previous books. Fossum is really good at creating disturbed and interesting characters.
A fellow Fossum fan! Oh I have to ask if you've read "When the devil holds the candle"? That's my favorite, it's horrible in the good way.

I have read "When the Devil Holds the Candle and thought it was excellent but He Who Fears the Wolf is my favourite Fossum novel. I think that the character of Erkki Johrma is one of the best developed and most tragic characters I have ever come across. Inspector Sejer is my second favourite police inspector coming in behind Arnaldur Indridason's Inspector Erlendur.

Re: What are you reading?

I am embarking on "These are the Voyages TOS Season One" by Marc Cushman. After about 100 pages I'm blown away. Never has the production of TOS been better documented. I am in heaven with this and the IS the book I've always wanted to read about TOS. It is an excellent read!!

Ah yes. Sejer is such a sweet man. And that one is also fantastic, as you say Erki is an amazing character.
There is a movie, which is quite good. The casting is great but Sejer isn't really Sejer.
