Domestic noir for dark times

Winters in Denmark are not for outdoors activities for any extended period of time.

Put another bout of restrictions on top of that and you have a lurking depression on your hands!
But a good book, whether printed, audio or online, can cure most things. Add to that the thrill of a good domestic noir novel and the knowledge things could be sooo much worse, well, it puts things into perspective. Unless of course your spouse is acting a bit odd…
