Shuichi Yoshida is being billed as the new Stieg Larsson by the WSJ. Read the article here. The book in question, Villain, has been made into a movie and will be shown at the Montreal International film fest in September. I've just ordered the book on Amazon... Will let you know my thoughts as soon as I've read it.
In the meantime, in other Japan-related news, let's all get together and try to coerce Evokative Films (using charm - nothing kinky please) into distributing Yoshihiro Nakamura's films on DVD here in Canada.

We saw Fish Story and Golden Slumber this summer and were completely hooked. We want more!!
