Pelham Grenville Wodehouse wrote a treasury of tales peopled by memorable figures of stern, well-meaning aunts, eccentric aristocrats, romantically bumbling young men, determined single women and unflappable butlers. No one could turn their foibles into better prose; no one could present the English aristocrats and their quirks with such sparkling wit. In an amazingly prolific career, PG Wodehouse wrote dozens of books.
Fans of Swedish crime fiction can look forward to a treat in Johan Theorin’s Echoes from the Dead. It has all the requisite criteria of a gripping thriller. A story stretched across time and an eerie atmosphere all infuses a timeless tale of betrayal and deceit. Add to it the setting: the island of Oland set in the Baltic Sea. Unsurprisingly, the island has its fair share of tales of strange happenings.
