First love is never forgotten. For Toru, a student in the turbulent 1960s, he is coming to terms with the suicide of his best friend Kizuki whose grief-stricken girlfriend, Naoko, he has since formed a complex bond. But Naoki's reclusive lifestyle and melancholic envelopment make it tough for Toru to form a connection, something he has no trouble in doing with the vivacious Midori who soon becomes his infatuation.

Women on the 6th Floor

Women on the 6th Floor

RRP $34.95


It's Paris, 1962. Wealthy stockbroker Jean-Louis lives a bourgeois existence with his perfectly-presented socialite wife. But when the family's maid abandons them, into the residence comes Maria, who is young, hardworking and - quelle horreur! - Spanish.

Remarkably it does not take long for the entire building to become enchanted with the new arrival; Maria rallies the friendships of the other servants on the sixth floor, and soon Jean-Louis is swept up into the wild and fun-loving cross-cultural environment of the women on the 6th floor, much to the horror of his conservative wife, colleagues and friends.


 Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

RRP $39.95 Sale Price $29.95


Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is all sleek, stealthy elegance. High-ranking intelligence officer George Smiley was forced out of service when a mission in Hungary went very wrong, but rumors of a Soviet mole hidden within the agency bring him back into play. If the theory of the former head, Control, is to be believed, the mole is at the very top, one of four senior officers. With the help of a lower-ranking agent with a few secrets of his own and a field agent who may be a source of disinformation, Smiley slowly draws out the clues he needs to lay a trap for the mole.




  The Killing Season 2

The Killing: Series 2

RRP $34.95


The body of a slain woman is found in a Copenhagen park commemorating Danish Resistance in WWII. A symbolic act? An ex-soldier disabled while serving in Afghanistan is savagely killed. A deadly warning? Sarah Lund is back, and her combinative powers are as sharp as ever. She soon discerns a common thread in the cases: all the victims are ex-soldiers, and all were stationed in Afghanistan. They are the protagonists of a twisting tale of top-level cover-ups, betrayals and lies set in a time of fear: that of Islamic terrorism, which clouds Sarah Lund's investigation. The victims are all linked through the war in Afghanistan - but is this really the deepest layer of these killings, which represent a major threat to the entire Danish government?
