Fjällbacka Murders coming soon!

I was very happy to see that Fjällbacka Murders is released in a few days!

Fjällbacka Murders is a collection of 10 new TV movies based on the characters in Camilla Läckbergs books. December 26, 2012 the first movie airs on Swedish Television. I will for sure tune in to SVT1 at 21:00.

I know Camilla Läckberg is very popular, but it does surprise me that every day people are visiting my blog in search of Camilla Läckbergs books in chronological order. And I mean it literally … EVERY DAY 🙂

Here we go; a list of Camilla Läckbergs books in the right order. Click the title to read more on Goodreads.

  1. The Ice Princess (Isprinsessen)

I’ve written the Danish titles in parantheses.

Game of Thrones is back!

Tonight at 21:00 Game of Thrones is back on Danish TV3. It’s a rerun of season 1 and you can watch an episode every night from December 18th – 29th. If you haven’t seen the 1st season yet, I highly recommend you do … after that you’re ready for season 2 premiere on January 5th.

The TV series is based on the books written by George R.R. Martin:

  1. A Game of Thrones
  2. A Clash of Kings
  3. A Storm of Swords

So far the first 3 of the books have been published in Denmark; Kampen om Tronen, Kongernes Kamp and En Storm af Sværd.
