I have postponed reading Vedas, becouse it´s just too much hymns I can´t process. I have apperently still enough mental capacity for Jungle book.

The Punishment and Death

This doesn´t entirely fit here, but I always knew I must mention this book here one day. You see, Swedish author Mats Olsson wrote a mystery novel that I think wasn´t actually translated to English, so I submit it here more like a peculiarity. It´s original title is "Straffa och låta dö" and in The Czechia it was published as "Trest a smrt" (The Punishment and Death). The main protagonist is erotical spanker, journalist Harry Svensson whose journey is interwined with the serial killer who first spanks women... And then kills them. Over the longer time, Harry and his collegues, will obviously track the murderer.

I must say I enjoyed the basic idea immensely, but although the novel wasn´t exactly badly written, it bored me frequntly and seemed rather slow. There´s at least one more book with Harry as main character, but I wasn´t interested anymore.

Doesn’t sound like a good way to go
