Trivia

The name Cormoran appears in Cornish folklore. He was a giant who lived in a cave on St. Michael's Mount off Cornwall's southern coast. 18ft tall he used the low tide to access the countryside and pillage the local community until he met his match in "Jack the Giant-Killer", a trapping pit and a mattock (pickaxe).

I have just watched 'The Cuckoo's Calling'. This is a great take on the hard on his heels private investigator gets an opportunity story. JK Rowling's content is as well written as a John Grisham/Agatha Christie with the added frisson of cool London locations and culture. I particularly like the casting of Tom Bell as the rough-round-the-edges sleuth and the engaging Holliday Grainger as his ever so capable assistant; they are both so watchable. I look forward to the next series (and for any critics of this series yes I am perfectly happy to overlook any plot holes).
