Minisode 1: Antiques Roadshow

For our first edition of Minisode Mysteries, Jonatan talks about the mystifying murder of Margareta af Forselles in what became known as ‘Koffertmordet i Göteborg’ or the Trunk Murder of Gothenburg (Sweden). Later, Ana tells the story of the curious disappearance of Trevaline Evans who failed to return to her antique’s shop on a busy Saturday afternoon. Plus a bonus Welsh lesson! (For any listeners in Wales, please send us pronunciation corrections and rarebit recipes).

1: Vintage Crime & Lethal Cocktails

In their first ever episode Ana has a sore throat and Jonatan has mic problems. Over several glasses of wine, they discuss an unsolved (Northern) Irish murder, a Japanese robbery and the airport equivalent of ‘Storage Wars’. Stay to the end for the ‘Drink of the Week’- it’s strong, sour and full of gin.
