Audiobook Challenge 2021 - August Audiobook


The Darkness


Ragnar Jonasson 

Narrated by Amanda Redman

This is my August Audiobook challenge:  Listening to an Audiobook set During Extreme Weather

For more on the 2021 Audiobook Listening Challenge click on the link below:

The Darkness is Book 1 of the Hidden Iceland book series by Ragnar Jonasson.  I'm really looking forward to listening to this book as a lover of Nordic Noir.

I also know about the narrator, British actress Amanda Redman.  I'm a fan of the New Tricks TV series, especially the first seasons starring Amanda Redman. 

Publisher description of the book:

Over a year later Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir of the Reykjavík police is forced into early retirement at 64. She dreads the loneliness, and the memories of her dark past that threaten to come back to haunt her. But before she leaves she is given two weeks to solve a single cold case of her choice. 

As a woman of a certain age myself, and recently retired. I look forward to getting to know DI Hermannsdottir.

Some Days On Twitter Are Interesting


A very interesting tweet from Yael Farber to Richard Armitage:

 Now, does this mean a new play together in the works?  They've wanted to work together again for a long time, since The Crucible,

They are friends, so it can also just be her saying she'll be near where he is again soon.  But I note the "Time to see you again".   Oh, I can only hope it is a new play, though unless it is in New York I won't be able to see it on stage.


The other interesting one is by author Arturo Perez-Reverte, an indirect reply Richard's tweet of earlier today that he is reading The Seville Communion novel.  Now it's been quite a while since Richard has been listed at Father Quart on IMDB for a movie based on this Perez-Reverte novel.


He says Richard is a magnificent actor, and he feels is being courted to see if he wants to play Father Quart.  And he hopes that's the case, and he thinks it seems Richard likes he novel.


I don't know.  But as a fan of Richard Armitage, Yael Farber, and Arturo Perez-Reverte,  I hope Richard is working with both soon, as per Twitter today.

Good start to July for Armitage fans.

Audiobook Challenge 2021 - July Audiobook

 For my July Listening Books Audiobook Challenge

I am selecting the "Free Space -- Choose Your Own Audiobook Challenge." My choice:


My audiobook for this month is The Night Hawks by Elly Griffiths, narrated by Jane McDowell - the latest book in the Ruth Galloway series.

Ruth Galloway is my favorite forensic archeologist.  I also related to Ruth as a person immediately in the first book of the series. I'm not an archeologist, but I share many of Ruth's view of the world.  

If you are not familiar with the Ruth Galloway books, you can read more about them at the link below:

(And of course I agree with author Elly Griffiths that Richard Armitage should be cast as DCI Harry) Nelson)
