New Book: The Pound of The Baskervilles


Retellings are popular these days. One takes a good and well-known story and bring it all the way up to today’s Copenhagen, avoiding the complicated traffic lights at Roskildevej. Thus, The Pound of The Baskervilles is a retelling of Conan Doyle’s most famous Sherlock Holmes story The Hound of The Baskervilles. It is witty, subtle and, above all, evasive. The elementary excitement known from the original story is beautifully reproduced and you are sitting on the edge of the chair and sometimes on your armrest or on the table as you read about The Pound of The Baskervilles.

The theme of the book stretches from the brilliant linguistic explanation of what the word pound means, pound is an old-fashioned currency known from Great Britain, to something very specific, namely a nice heirloom that changes hands during a singing game between deeply interesting people.
