Welcome to another in the bite-sized interviews.
Today I have the pleasure of introducing Quentin Bates, a UK based author who has lived more than a decade in Iceland and has written several crime novels based in present-day Iceland. He has also translated Ragnar Jónasson’s, Snowblind.
Because we talk about Icelandic crime fiction for the length of the bite-sized interview (10 minutes) I decided to let the interview go on longer as I wanted to be able to talk about translation and I felt you might also be interested in that aspect, so this interview is 17 minutes long. I hope you enjoy it. Quentin was a pleasure to chat with.
Are you a fan of Icelandic crime fiction? What is it about it that you love so much?
How lovely to see Quentin ‘live’! I’m very fond of his books and now his translations. 1.5 murders per year in Croydon? That made me laugh…
Margot Kinberg says
Really fine interview! Thanks very much, both.
Jacqui Murray says
What a fascinating author. Thanks for chatting with us, Quentin!
Because of this capability, this equipment is mainly
used in drainage cleaning where solids have already mixed in with the
fluids. Their payloads are spread out over the entire dump body in order to maintain the weight requirements of
the federal bridge laws. Today there are various insulation materials that are used directly over the
exterior of the tire before the finish is applied.
There is no need to purchase bottled water, which is expensive; you
can store your own fresh drinking water for purposes of drinking in vertical storage tanks.
Reed beds present sludge dewatering by plant consumption, evapotranspiration, and drainage.
These microbes will settle in the tank and digest the waste in the tank.
Most of those supplements work by stopping the cause of baldness.
Sometimes eating of bad calories result in making the dieter overweight
which is really a matter of concern because it directly targets the
working efficiency of its user. Do a simple search
on Google or Amazon for a keyword like “dog supplements” and instantly you will
get hundreds of thousands of results.
