The fugitive - Assange needs new safe haven

Interpol adds to calls for arrest of Wikileaks ringmaster thought to be hiding in London

Wikileaks founder wanted by Interpol to answer rape charges

An international arrest warrant is to be issued against Julian Assange, founder of the whistleblowing website Wikileaks, after a Swedish court ruled he should face questioning over a rape allegation. Mr Assange is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion after encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden in August. He denies the allegations and insists he had consensual sex with the women.

Cycling: US doping inquiry focuses on France

American investigators have interviewed French anti-doping officials at Interpol headquarters in Lyons as part of an investigation into allegations of drug use by cyclists, including the multiple Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.

Interpol, Heaven, London

They've been away for quite a while, have Interpol. One of the best bands of their generation had looked done in by the time they released their third album. When it didn't get the hoped for response, it looked like the band would drift apart. Now though, three years later, dimly under-lit and swathed in dry ice, Interpol's hiatus is nothing more than an awkward memory.

Interpol chief has identity stolen

Criminals have used the Facebook identity of Ron Noble, the head of Interpol, to try to set up an identity fraud in the hope of getting information on a major operation by the international police agency.

Album: Interpol, Interpol (Matador)

They ought to call it the Interpol Paradox: the harder the New Yorkers try to evoke gravitas, the better the end result functions as mood music; the more heartfelt Paul Banks' vocal, the more existential the lyric; the more portentous the bassline, the more you can listen to it as a flatteringly grandiose soundtrack to your own tribulations.

Caught in the Net - One good track does not an album make

I was fairly unmoved by Chromeo's 2007 LP Fancy Footwork: it seemed a Hall & Oates inspired electrofunk pop pastiche too far (the Canadian duo even performed with Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates at this year's Bonnaroo festival); though plenty who know better than me seemed to like it. Chromeo (below) now have a new album on the way called Business Casual, released in September, and a new track from it emerged this week. Listen to a stream of "Don't Turn The Lights On" at chromeo.net. I actually quite like this one. It's suitably knowing and cheesy, yet great fun. But one decent track doesn't sway me fully: I don't think I'll stick with a whole album like this.

The Man Who Disappeared, By Clare Morrall

A novelist in search of a syndrome, Clare Morrall seems irresistibly drawn to characters with cognitive disorders. Her Man Booker-short listed debut Astonishing Splashes of Colour featured a heroine who suffered from synaesthesia, while subsequent novels explored Asperger's and depression. In The Man Who Disappeared, her fourth novel, she examines a yet more idiosyncratic condition - a middle-aged woman seemingly entirely happy with her lot.
