Lots of news about all things Cormoran Strike have been released lately, so here’s a quick round up!

The new BBC Cormoran Strike series crew was seen in Hatfield, filming at the local Potters Bar in High Street at the end of February.


Strikefans.com  recently did a write up of the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese pub, one that’s featured in the Cormoran Strike novels. They give a short literary history of the place,

“It’s fitting that editor Nina would choose such a spot. Literary legends Yeats, Samuel Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith, Mark Twain, Alfred Tennyson and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock!) are all said to have visited the establishment, and Charles Dickens was a regular. There’s been a pub at this location since 1538.”

They painstakingly went through the book and plucked out quotes that describe the actual establishment; including passages about the stuffed grey parrot that is really in the pub, and the fact that you have to mind your head when walking to the bathroom or else you’ll be like Strike who, “smacked his head even while stooping.”

To top it all off, Jo’s been tweeting again – and this time it’s all about cracking the code on the name of the new Cormoran Strike novel.

Jo seemed to have a wild time along with the fans as they attempted to solve her puzzle:

and the followers came up with some great guesses:

Someone got really close for a second:

There were a few more predictions;

and then finally someone guessed it; the fourth novel will be called Lethal White!

It looks like the lucky winner will Strike it rich with an autographed copy!

Then she went off into the night to finish the book.

So now, with all of that anticipation, we’ve just got to wait for the book to be finished. We’re sure it’ll be worth it!
