HARDBOILED CORNER: MORE VARG VEUM!

HARDBOILED CORNER: MORE VARG VEUM!


I WROTE LAST WEEK ABOUT ENJOYING THE VARG VEUM COLLECTION OF NORWEIGIAN MYSTERIES ON DVD. SINCE THEN, I’VE ORDERED A COUPLE OF THE GUNNAR STAALESEN NOVELS (THERE ARE ONLY FOUR OF THE TWENTY OR SO NOVELS TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH) ON WHICH THE FILMS WERE BASED.



I ALSO SPOTTED OVER AT THE EURO CRIME BLOG THAT STAALESEN'S PI HERO, VARG VEUM, HAS ALSO MADE THE TRANSITION TO GRAPHIC NOVELS IN FIVE ADVENTURES DRAWN BY MIKE COLLINS. THEY ARE IN NORWEIGIAN, BUT THE COVERS ARE COOL . . .
