4.0 out of 5 stars Rebus and Fox together!!, 8 Mar 2014

Brilliant story again from Rankin involving Rebus and his nemesis Malcolm Fox of "complaints", and up to date bringing the Scottish Independence question into the story. Gripping to the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for any invader, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For such a subject matter, this was an extremely engrossing read. It should be required reading for all politicians hankering after interfering in another countries affairs. likewise I'd recommend this to all armed forces staff colleges as it demonstrates that some things just never change.

I like the book very much and it was as described. i was a bit concerned as the outer packaging was badly damaged upon arrival, however the book had been wrapped well enough inside to protect it. All in all a good buy and a service I will use again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Value at the "Sale" price, 1 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of the goal is first rate.
It is a little on the small side when erected, and is a little difficult to pack away back into its bag as you have to fold it down to about one quarter of its full size.
It suits my three year old but I can see it being too small quite soon and will have to upgrade to the next size in a year or so.
I have seen similar products since at prices lower than its full price. I am however happy with the purchase at the lower price it was on offer for during the special offer period.

4.0 out of 5 stars The darker Wallander?, 23 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Those expecting the TV based Wallander, even the Swedish version, should think again. This is a much darker Wallander who intersperses a good thrilling story with the personal issues that bother him throughout. The story also lifts the lid a little on the darker side of the Swedish physche, making for an overall more enjoyable and believable story .
