I was at work today when it occurred to me that I hadn't posted to LJ for a long, long, loooong time.  And since in the intervening time I've moved city and got properly connected to the internet I have absolutely no excuse not to post any more.  First of all, then, here's the rest of the story I started posting several decades ago.

Five First Dates - Dates Four and Five, and the Epilogue

I've just realised that I haven't posted anything since June.  Ouch.  You don't want to know about the drama that's going on in my life just now, suffice it to say that I'm very tempted to up sticks and do a runner to Ystad to get away from it.  Anyway, date three, in which Wallander finds out more than he needs to know...

It took a lot of persuading from Linda for Wallander to agree to go on another date after the debacle he had had with Agata. It was three weeks before his colleagues at the station had stopped sniggering and teasing him about it. Even Chief Holgersson, who he had expected to take a dim view of his date with a suspect, had stifled a smile or two during her rather excruciating interrogation of him. He wasn't ready to trawl the newspaper for another potential train wreck of a date.

In the event, though, it was an acquaintance who had set him up on a blind date with a woman who was, apparently, the "perfect match" for him. Beautiful, intelligent, not too young but not too old either: she sounded too good to be true. Wallander was sceptical, but secretly curious about this woman. In his experience there was always a catch with a woman that perfect.

Date two, in which all Hell breaks loose.

Wallander shifted from one foot to the other.  She was late and he was getting cold.  Meeting on the seafront was now seeming like less and less of a good idea, especially in Ystad in April, when the weather could be unpredictable to say the least.  He pondered morosely that perhaps he wasn’t the only one with cold feet: she might have changed her mind about coming.

Encouraged by his daughter Linda, Wallander looks in the Personals column of the local newspaper to try and cure his loneliness.  Consequently five less than wonderful dates follow…

Date One, in which Wallander has a lucky escape.

Wallander arrived somewhat nervously at the restaurant.  They’d arranged to meet for 7:30 and he was a few minutes early.  He hoped they would be able to recognise each other.  If she was as attractive as her voice on the phone had suggested he would have no trouble picking her out, but he hoped she didn’t take one look at him and change her mind.

“Who wants an aging policeman anyway?” he thought.  It had mainly been his daughter Linda’s idea to answer the advert in the Personals section of the paper.  Given his own previous experience with such things he could be forgiven for feeling sceptical.
