Drinking: I stumbled over a norwegian teaclub a little while ago an decided to try them out. Yesterday my first package arrived and today I am trying out their Solnedgang (Sunset) tea. It's black tea flavoured with red orange.
Reading: I like a good crime novel and a good dystopian novel. So what can be better than a novel with both?? The Healer by Antti Tuomainen is a finnish book, but it is translated to several languages, and I must say it is very good! I do hope for a happy ending...
It’s two days before Christmas and Helsinki is battling a ruthless climate catastrophe: subway tunnels are flooded; abandoned vehicles are left burning in the streets; the authorities have issued warnings about malaria, tuberculosis, Ebola, and the plague. People are fleeing to the far north of Finland and Norway where conditions are still tolerable. Social order is crumbling and private security firms have undermined the police force. Tapani Lehtinen, a struggling poet, is among the few still able and willing to live in the city.
When Tapani’s beloved wife, Johanna, a newspaper journalist, goes missing, he embarks on a frantic hunt for her. Johanna’s disappearance seems to be connected to a story she was researching about a politically motivated serial killer known as “The Healer.” Desperate to find Johanna, Tapani’s search leads him to uncover secrets from her past. Secrets that connect her to the very murders she was investigating... - From Goodreads -
I have also finnished the socks I was knitting on last week. I like the colour, but the purple stripe above the heel on the left one irritates me a little bit.. Without it they would have looked a little more matching.
