the terrorists

Yesterday I finished The Terrorists, the last Martin Beck novel by Sjowall and Wahloo. It was okay, but again, following the pattern of the novels as they've gone on in the series, too much of the personal and political for my liking and not enough of the detective. 

I ordered from the library - rather than leaving it to the vagaries of the second-hand world - the two remaining books to read, No 5 and No 9, and started No 5 yesterday. (I'd only reserved them a couple of days earlier, and they'd had to come from other branches, and will only cost 50p each, which I don't begrudge.) Unlike the Reginald Hills, I'm still enjoying them enough to want to read them all; just disappointing given my initial high hopes.
