Greetings Bob
And congratulations to the very impressive 2:nd place. I actually bought "TTPDA" as an ebook from Waterstones so I might have contributed a bit.
But since I'm an bookstore owner in the south of Sweden I took the opportunity to order "TTPDA" as an ordinary book and it sold within minutes.
About the translation of my "review" of it from our blog, it goes something like this:

"... This is a book in the vein of Jasper Fforde and his Thursday Next series and it's about the only surviving pig from the wolf attacks; Harry Pigg, the one that made his house out of bricks. Harry is nowadays a detective in Grimmtown and gets a job from one of the wealthiest persons in the city, Aladdin, who wants him to retrieve an old lamp. A short book, with lots of laughs and a tricky detective riddle.

This is the first book in a series that I will follow with joy. Just the kind of crazy stories I like."

Thanks for everything Bob, looking forward to coming books.
