Corduroy Mansions – Alexander McCall Smith

The books of Alexander McCall Smith were recommended to me by a Swedish professor, when I was in Uppsala. One night after dinner, we were discussing mystery and detectives’ books and I said that my favourites were from authors already death (Ellery Queen; Agatha Christie, Rex Stout and so on) which is not very nice since once you’ve read their books … well, you can not expect more to be published 🙂

On my last day in Uppsala, he offered me the first volume of “The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” series and I liked it so much that I am following the series. I bought other books from the same author and I found out a curious way of writing a book by publishing chapters in a newspaper, just like some of our Portuguese writers used to do.

Now, he is writing his first online novel to Telegraph. You can already read or hear the first chapter here.
