»One step at a time – even if the case seems difficult and there are lots of suspects to question. You must never forget that!« In the snow-covered forest, nuts have recently been stolen. The elderly detective Gordon investigates the case. Could it have been the evil fox? After all, everyone is convinced that foxes eat anything when they’re hungry. Fortunately, the nimble mouse Paddy helps Gordon search for the culprit. Together they make a great team and they never forget the rules of the game: »Being nice is allowed, being mean is against the law«.

Based on the award-winning children’s books by Ulf Nilsson and Gitte Spee. »I always go to this little bookshop around the corner.

Every once in a while I buy some books and that’s how I found stories about Detective Gordon and Paddy. I really liked the illustrations, but when I started to read one called The First Case, I really fell in love with the tone. There is a certain calm in the way Ulf Nilsson tells this story. He advises us to be nice to each other and friendly, but at the same time it’s a real page-turner – you want to understand what is happening. It’s about this unlikely friendship, but also about ageing. About getting ready to retire and discovering it’s not as nice as you thought it would be. I read many children’s books because I am a parent myself, and there are so few that you really love. But I always come back to certain authors and he is one of them.«
