Here are this week's new reviews and details of an extra competition to the two mentioned last weekend:
This week we go to America, Norway, France, Russia and Botswana in our reviews, starting with Lee Child's Jack Reacher in his latest paperback incarnation - Bad Luck and Trouble reviewed by sock knitter extraordinaire Pat Austin;
I review the second of the Vik-Stubo series by Anne Holt which is set in Norway and France - The Final Murder (US: What Never Happens) - I preferred this to the first book enormously;
Continuing in France, Laura Root reviews the first book to feature Nicholas Le Floch - The Chatelet Apprentice by Jean-Francois Parot set in pre-revolutionary Paris;
Karen Chisholm reviews the much publicised Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith set in Stalinist Russia;
Moving onto Botswana, Maxine Clarke calls - A Carrion Death by Michael Stanley a "rip-roaring read"
and back in France, Maxine has good things to say about Bruno, Chief of Police by Martin Walker.
