Volume four in the Tora Skammelsen crime series (a novella of around 100 pages) Tora buys her home near the North Sea, but village life does not quite live up to her expectations. Soon she develops a keen interest in the activities of her peculiar neighbour Margrethe. Why does the widow try to hide the fact that a man is living with her? Besides there is Rune, the charming sales rep at the Old Mill Inn, who all but sweeps Tora off her feet while her friend, Police Inspector Thomas Bilgren, is preoccupied with a bank robbery. The story can be read as a stand-alone, but for readers with an interest in Tora's private affairs it may be a good idea to begin with 'North Sea Cottage'.

Maisie’l on seljataga üksildane ja mitte eriti õnnelik lapsepõlv ning õnnetu abielu. Ta on lõpuks leidnud endale lähedase inimese ja tegevuse, mis talle naudingut pakub. Oma lapsepõlve peamisest toest ja lohutusest, kujuteldavast hobusest Hamiltonist on ta kirjutanud raamatu, mida on saatnud suur menu. Siis aga selgub, et minevikust vabanemine ei olegi nii lihtne, nagu ta on arvanud. Keegi soovib talle halba ja tahab, et ta kaotaks kõik selle, mis teda õnnelikuks teeb. Järg raamatule “Hamilton”, mis ilmus Varrakult 2010. aasta juulis.
The classical gold standard has long been a source of fascination to historians, monetary economists and policy-makers. This literature has centered on the few countries of the "core" which adhered longest and most consistently to it and misses out on the forty-odd countries which also adopted it at some stage. This book focuses on a sample of six of the latter, from Europe and Latin America, and discusses the specific problems they encountered as members of this system.
