Guess What I'm Reading
I've just started a new book (in translation) and it struck me how the following action in the sentence below rarely appears in British crime fiction (except in Oxford and Cambridge settings perhaps) but is common in a certain European country:
When Carl got home, he leaned his bicycle against the shed outside the kitchen...
Carl is a senior detective and the lead character.
Which country do you think this book is set in :)?
