What do Two Weeks to Remember, The Promise of Happiness, Heaven Around the Corner, Midnight Sun's Magic and The Silver Thaw all have in common? No, it's not RDD's....only 2 of them feature Dutch Doctors. I'm just teasing, I know you've already pegged that they all have a substantial amount of pages devoted to Norway. I also know there is at least one or two more books that I've left out - I just can't quite bring them to mind - in one the heroine is visiting Norway as a companion to an old lady - they are staying in a hotel, the old lady plays bridge in the afternoon...there is some sightseeing, a really bad car accident in a tunnel...aargh! I don't have time to root around in my collection. Why Norway? I have my own theory about that. I strongly suspect that The Venerable Betty took a cruise or two to the fjords. Her descriptions of the sights and scenery are most often places that tourists would visit - thus all those visits to Grieg's house, mentions of the funicular, cathedrals, stave churches, and Frogner Park.
*If I got that right, my post title says: "Good Afternoon" in Norwegian. If not, I'm probably guilty of blasphemy and will be burned at the stake.
