My dad wanted me to look out for Lawrence Block's 'Burglar' books. So a list is required:

1. Burglars Can't Be Choosers
2. The Burglar in the Closet
3. The Burglar Who Liked to Quote Kipling
4. The Burglar Who Studied Spinoza
7. The Burglar Who Thought He Was Bogart
8. The Burglar in the Library

NOT GOT

5. The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian
6. The Burglar Who Traded Ted Williams
9. The Burglar in the Rye
10. The Burglar on the Prowl
11. The Burglar Who Counted The Spoons
12. The Burglar Who Dropped in on Elvis

Although I balk at cataloguing my dad's books, or even my own, I am trying to make lists of some of the book series that we like, in the hope of being able to grab missing books if/when I see them, rather than buying duplicates, getting home, and trying to be inventive with the invective. I started with the Cadfaels:

GOT

1. A Morbid Taste for Bones
2. One Corpse Too Many
3. Monk's Hood
4. Saint Peter's Fair
5. The Leper of Saint Giles
6. The Virgin in the Ice
7. The Sanctuary Sparrow
8. The Devil's Novice
9. Dead Man's Ransom
10. The Pilgrim of Hate
11. An Excellent Mystery
12. The Raven in the Foregate
13. The Rose Rent
14. The Hermit of Eyton Forest
15. The Confession of Brother Haluin
16. A Rare Benedectine: The Advent of Brother Cadfael
17. The Heretic's Apprentice
18. The Potter's Field
19. The Summer of the Danes


NOT GOT

20. The Holy Thief
21. Brother Cadfael's Penance

So we're doing pretty well there :).

Then I tried to list Henning Mankell's Wallander series, and got Hopelessly Confused. I'm not even going to try to put the books in the right order, but these seem to be they:

GOT

Faceless Killers
The Dogs of Riga
The White Lioness
The Man Who Smiled
One Step Behind
Before the Frost

NOT GOT

Sidetracked
The Fifth Woman
Firewall
The Pyramid
The Troubled Man

Bit of work still to do :).

*taps fingers*

Who's next?
