Kookai G2751 Women's Jumper Off White Large KOOKAÏ

5.0 out of 5 stars Brill!, 10 Jan 2013
The whole process was excellent. I ordered from Amazon's sale at 4pm, had an e-mail at 8pm saying it had been despatched, another at 9am the next morning saying it would be delivered by 2pm and it arrived at 12:30! The jumper itself was much better than I expected and everytime I've worn it people have commented on how nice it looks. Who needs shops - sorry and all that, but from a customer's point of view the on-line system works :-)

Attenborough's voice has been the backdrop through most of my life and I'd like to… Read more
The Troubled Man: A Kurt Wallander Mystery by Henning Mankell
4.0 out of 5 stars A sad goodbye, 1 May 2011
I thought the Troubled Man of the title was going to be Wallander himself but no, it was one of the main protagonists, Linda's father-in-law, who goes missing unexpectedly, followed a few weeks later by his wife. That's not to say that Wallander wasn't his usual troubled self in this excellent final story in a first class series - he wouldn't be the Wallander we know and love if he didn't keep questioning himself and his past. Apart from the usual mystery to solve, there's also a lot of wide-ranging European politics in this book. It also paves the way for Linda to take up where her father left off so we can look forward to more Swedish crime I hope. I always wonder how much of Mankell… Read more
