In this first book of a new crime novel series we get to know Leander Lost, a police officer from Hamburg who participates at an exchange program and will stay one year in Portugal – in Fuseta, a small town at the Eastern Algarve. But Leander Lost is not the ordinary kind of police men: He wears only black, stares strangely into the eyes of other people and – most important – cannot lie. Soon after his arrival there is a murder case to investigate and his new Portuguese police partners, sub-inspector Rosado and her colleague Esteves, have to deal with this strange new man in their team.
This book was a positive surprise: It is written in an entertaining (German) voice, I really liked its figures and I learned a lot about the people at the Algarve. A book that is worth reading – not only if you are actually in Portugal.
I wish you a wonderful week! Enjoy the sun :)!

In Portugal we ate tons of fish. Nevertheless, the one dish that impressed me most were crispy sweet potato SKINS! Yes, you read it right: skins. What a genius way to use the whole sweet potato, without creating any waste. Back home in Hamburg, I already prepared them for myself as an easy snack :).
We are back from Portugal. Somehow I made it through the plane flights …and it was totally worth it! The Algarve was a dream: On my birthday we had 30°C (a first in 35 years) and visited the most stunning beaches. The wedding of Isa and André was full of sunshine and love. Lisbon impressed me with its Fado sounds, the steep streets of Alfama, a hilarious tram ride, its elevators to reach the higher parts of the town and its many panoramic views. Here are some photographic impressions of our Portuguese adventures…
I wish you a wonderful fresh week! Let the sun shine in your hearts!
Austrian band Little Big Sea were the music act at the #dico16 and really got me into a relaxed mood! I love their laid-back attitude, the dream-like voice of singer Marlene as well as their catchy tunes! They reminded me a bit on Memoryhouse but were still unique! Hopefully, we will hear more about them in the future! Their first album will be released this year :).
Have fun listening!
