They won "The Redbreast"

Readers in Texas and Colorado knew that Jo Nesbø's The Redbreast includes an amusingly vapid radio interview with a U.S. president just arrived in Norway for the 1993 Oslo conference. They also knew that Ehud Barak and Yasir Arafat attended.

This knowledge wins them each a copy of the U.S. paperback release of The Redbreast. (Click here to learn why I liked the book.)

Thanks for letting us know the answers and the outcome, Peter. I would have had Oslo without peeking but Arafat and Barak would not have come to me spontaneously.

If you had peeked in the book for the answers, I would not have told on you.

The Oslo conference does not figure in the story's main action, by the way, just in the very funny fictitious (I presume) interview with a U.S. president near the beginning of the novel.

Well, peeking in the book would have entailed finding the book quickly, for one thing, and amidst the holiday madness, that probably wasn't going to happen. Also, as a bookseller, I do tend to like the idea of books getting the widest dispersal possible, and I quite like the idea of three of us in Texas, Colorado and California reading away and then telling our friends, etc.

Don't worry--there are undoubtedly future contests that I'll be able to compete in quite legitimately. Although 'legitimately' probably equates to 'losingly'.

I can well identify with a frustrating inability to find a book one knows is somewhere in one's house or apartment.

I, too, like spreading the word far and wide, especially about a book I enjoy. And I recommend this one to you and to all readers.
