Sherlock Holmes: Das Geheimnis des weißen Bandes (Anthony Horowitz)

This could be interesting for my German speaking readers that are fans of the world's most famous detective: Sherlock Holmes. A new novel 'Sherlock Holmes: Das Geheimnis des weißen Bandes' by Anthony Horowitz will be released on December 12, 2011. It's the first Sherlock Holmes novel that has been authorized by the Doyle Trust since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1930. For this occasion Suhrkamp / Insel Verlag started a campaign on facebook and on the fb page they'll reveal the first hints for which you need to use your Sherlock Holmes-like combination skills to unravel a mystery and you'll get the chance to win a copy of 'Sherlock Holmes: Das Geheimnis des weißen Bandes'. Just watch this (really stylish) video and answer the question at the end. The music in the video is by Mechanical Cabaret who created some exclusive tracks for the campaign. If you like their music then check out the website For more about the book and the campaign which continues for three weeks visit the facebook page
