The novelist, whose books have been adapted into the television series Shetland, fears the computer may have fallen out of her bag as she made her way through Lerwick in wintry conditions on Monday. In an appeal on Twitter (pictured inset), she offered a reward for the return of the laptop, though said it is probably buried under 'a foot of snow' by now as the islands have been hit by severe wintry weather.

A horror story that will tug at your heart: PATRICK MARMION reviews Let The Right One In, November 4, 2022
PATRICK MARMION: How do you feel about horror stories? Some won't go near them, even armed with a crucifix and bottle of holy water. But inside many a fright-fest lies a fairy tale, trying to get out. That was definitely the case with John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel about Oskar, a bullied adolescent in suburban 1980s Stockholm who befriends young vampire Eli, after she moves in next door. (The book was adapted by Lindqvist himself for the Swedish film of the same name). And Bryony Shanahan's mesmerising revival of Jack Thorne's 2013 adaptation sinks its fangs into the story's jugular afresh . . . with pleasingly creepy results.

ROLAND WHITE reviews last night's TV: You'll never outpace Shetland copper in reasonably priced car, September 15, 2022
ROLAND WHITE: It was a far, far better thing that Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez did last night than he has ever done before. The hero of Shetland (BBC1) quit his job on a matter of principle after freeing a murder suspect, wanted in the U.S., whom he believed to be innocent. And suspect Lloyd Anderson, played by Patrick Robinson, seemed remarkably grateful considering that Perez had just arrested his lover for murder. It was a busy last day at work as Perez (Douglas Henshall) prevented a bomb attack by an eco-terrorist, wrapped up three murders and at last declared his love for adorable Nurse Meg (Lucianne McEvoy). About time, too. The main killer - accounting for two of the bodies - turned out to be environmental campaigner Jamie Narey (Grant O'Rourke), who had a grudge against the oil industry after the death of his activist girlfriend.
