and "scouse git" was apparently transposed to US TV as "meathead." see what I mean, just not the same :)

obligatory on-topic: just finished "Red Light" by T. Jefferson Parker. Good stuff. It's interesting that this is a completely different kind of book from "Blue Hour" yet the characterizations are pretty consistent. There are a few annoying cliches involved in revealing the mystery - can we never have the killer hold the heroine at gunpoint and explain his whole plan again? please? - but the good definitely outweighs the bad in this book.
