Enjoy the top slot while you can, Dr Lecter: next week, young Harry Potter will start to work his magic over you and all your rivals. Without Hannibal, Jane Green's new summer (sort of) romance would easily capture the summit. In the sports list, Man Utd occupy four places (including Becks, scraping in) but rescued sailor Pete Goss shows that a salty yarn can still win enough briny hearts to see off a mere soccer team.
