Who am I and why did I create this site?
My name is Karl-Erik Lindkvist, I am a Swedish reader of crime fiction, and the reason why this page came into existance is the lack of a good site, describing Ross Macdonald and his books on the Web. It is by no means meant to be a finished product, so if you find something wrong or miss something in particular, please send a mail .
|I first encountered Ross Macdonald's novels in 1977, and they made a great impact on me because they were so different from everything else I had been reading up to that time. I started with 'The Goodbye Look' and made my way through them in no particular order. Over the years I have reread them on numerous occasions. There is always something new to be discovered in them, beside the simple fact that they are so good.|
|I have had great help with the facts on these pages from one source in particular: 'Ross Macdonald' by Matthew J. Bruccoli, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Publishers, 1984. An excellent book that covers almost every aspect of the writings of Kenneth Millar. I can wholeheartedly recommend it if you want to know more after looking through what I have compiled.|
