Brilliant, but have only read the French, have heard that L'Homme a l'envers in English isn't so good (says Amazon)

Yes, I am really enjoying reading these too - very funny and quirky crime stories. I have read one in English and one in French - the English translation seems to be quite good.

Ah, freaky... only yesterday I was trying to track this author down. I heard her mentioned in a programme on Radio 4 months ago and made a mental note to read, but when the time came just couldn't remember the name. Stabbed wildly on Amazon (search French + detective and of course all you get is Nicci you-know-who), so no luck and finally gave up yesterday afternoon. As usual, MN has the answer - even unbidden. Am straight off to Amazon now to order! Thanks smile
