I was at the launch of Weeping Waters last night.  It is the English translation of the brilliant Plaasmoord.

Andrew Brown (right) interviewed her, so we had two amazing authors entertaining us in the Book Lounge.

Andrew praised Karin for not dwelling on the death of the child – that would have been too much. The woman’s death is rather gruesome. Karin says violence, like sex, needs to be held in check.

Andrew, a sergeant in the Police’s reserve force, also praised her for the sensitive way she dealt with the police as well as the careful way in which she waylaid the right-wing claims that all farm attacks are racially motivated. Karin pointed out that she used to be a political journalist.

All in all it was yet another very good night for crime writing in South Africa!

Johan Hugo, van Protea Boekwinkel in Rondebosch, het die boeke verkoop. Hy het baie moeite gedoen om hulle mooi te laat lyk.
