After my Georgette Heyer flash, I re-read other former favorites of mine, namely the ten crime fiction novels by the Swedish author couple Sjoewall&Wahloo. (Unfortunately, they barely seemed to have been translated to English.)
Some thoughts about their writing )
some thoughts about writing in general and why short and crisp is a main point for me (close to bitching) )
This said, I started reading The Crimson Petal and the White, which I bought 1.5 years ago at Frankfurt airport. It has a great writing style, but it's a damn big book...
