Icelandic Crime Writer on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 17th Nov 2017 19:19
Life’s a Pitch is live on BBC Radio Suffolk at lunchtime on Saturday and sees host Mark Murphy, legend-in-residence Kevin Beattie, New Tractorboy and TWTD’s Phil Ham, who will be at the KCOM Stadium ahead of the game against Hull City, joined by Icelandic crime writer and Town supporter of 44 years standing Óskar Guðmundsson, who will be about to see the Blues in action live for the very first time (12-2pm).
Guðmundsson, whose 2015 debut novel Hilma was highly-acclaimed and won awards in Iceland, is in the UK for Hull Noir, a week-long crime-writing festival exploring the best of British and international crime fiction, which coincides neatly with the Blues’ game at the KCOM Stadium.
Can Town build on the 3-0 win at home to Preston at Hull and make Óskar’s afternoon? Can the Blues maintain their play-off push? Give us your thoughts on those questions or anything else via email, Mark’s Twitter or during the show by phone on 01473 212121 or text to 81333 starting your message with SFK.
The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and also now on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

Favourites for Relegation by BossMan
I'm a daily visitor to the bet365 website and noticed this morning that for the first time this season (with this particular bookmaker) we are now favourites for relegation. Of course, other bookmakers are available.
Anger is Not a Good Emotion by TimS
I am starting to realise that as I grow older, I am harking back to a period of my life which seemed to be idyllic, but it probably was totally different in reality.
Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
