Cafe thinking

Comment • reviews • Nordic Noir • whimsy


Hello. I’m Richard Fernandez and welcome to Cafe Thinking.

This is a blog about things that interest me and I hope some of the topics will interest you too. You’ll find a mix of commentary on current affairs, reviews of books and films (often but not exclusively with a Nordic Noir or literary fiction origin) and thoughts on topics from the London Underground to Crystal Palace FC.

This blog is also the home of Secret Library, an occasional feature in which authors nominate books that don’t get as much attention as they deserve.

I wrote How to win power and lose everythingan episode-by-episode guide – available for Kindle – to the Danish TV drama, Borgen.

I once beat CJ on Eggheads.

Views here are mine, and not that of anyone else or any organisation.

Review policy: I am delighted to review fiction (literary fiction and European Noir) and books on politics, economics, business and railways. Where a review copy has been received in return for a fair review, this is stated on the review itself. It can take several weeks between receiving a review copy and a review being posted, but I sometimes take part in blog tours or may be able to agree a publishing date, depending on other commitments. If you have a query, get in touch.

Affiliate statement: Some posts provide links to Amazon UK where you can buy the product reviewed. If you buy having followed that link, I get a small commission. So it’s a way of supporting the blog 😉

    I’ve responded to Stacey and Mary and have now written an additional post setting out my theory – you can find it via the original Watching You review.

    I saw the comments on your blog about “whose hair it was”, from the book “Watching You” by Lisa Jewell. I really enjoyed reading the book until I got to the last page then I felt lost and annoyed about the hair. If you wouldn’t mind would you please send me an explanation.
    Thanks for your time,
