In 1928 Arthur Upfield, Australia’s premier crime writer, plotted the perfect murder for his novel THE SANDS OF WINDEE.
Meanwhile, one of his friends, stockman Snowy Rowles, put the scheme into deadly effect, even before the book was published. This true story resulted in one of Australia’s most sensational murder trials of the 1930’s and catapulted Upfield’s name onto the world stage.
The ABC are screening a 95 minute telemovie on June 14. Check the website.
Here is the first of 5 short Youtube snippets about the making of 3 Acts of Murder.

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.

Oh, I thought my headache had gone, but I read the post as if Australia´s prime minister had plotted the perfect murder! But who knows with politicians these days :)
By the way, your blog is so neat and tidy now; it is much easier to find everything.
Have you ever come across any Upfield Dorte? Perhaps I need to send you a couple!
Well, Robert Menzies is the lead in the film and he is the grandson of the prime minister Robert Menzies...maybe there's a connection :)
Actually I haven´t. In Denmark we neither come across many Australian crime novels nor many of your prime ministers.
