Why MYSTERIES? Because that is the genre I read. Why PARADISE? Because that is where I live.
Among other things, this blog, the result of a 2008 New Year's resolution, will act as a record of books that I've read, and random thoughts.

Agatha Christie Carnival
I like the Krister Henriksson Wallander, but look forward to see Kenneth Branagh...? Is he going to be Wallander in a movie or...? My parents have a whole series of Wallander-movies on dvd, but I am not really sure if it is Rolf Lässgaard or Krister Henriksson playing Wallander.Louisehttp://louspages.blogspot.com
Good question! I could google and cheat, but I won't. I love deep voices.
So which do you think best fits your image of Kurt Wallander from the books?
None of them, really. I imagine him as more overweight, less handsome, with less hair. But I suppose that would not make a good film chracter (or at least, not popular).I am quite heartended by the Branagh shot because he looks more like Wallander might look than I thought - but in the shot on the cover of my daughters' TV guide the other week he did not look a bit like W, more like a matinee idol (even though one daughter says "Branagh is very old" whereas to me he is forever the 23-year-old who wrote his autobiography!).I think the one on the far left (pixellated so a bit hard to tell) seems the most similar, to me.

Kenneth Branagh as Wallander? Branagh is much too good-looking. I'll still tune in, of course. And Branagh will be very easy on the eyes!
Branagh looks pretty scruffy in the promo photoes Lourdes
