Various medical bulletins were being issued as Kevin Pietersen appeared to be building an innings to crush Australia at the dawn of this latest war of the Ashes. The problem, it was finally decided, was somewhere in his right calf, just above the Achilles tendon that recently required a cortisone injection.

One of the spine-tingling pleasures of Let the Right One In is that it takes a while to reveal what sort of film it is. It begins by introducing you to Oskar (Kare Hedebrant), a 12-year-old who lives with his mother in a cramped flat in a concrete Stockholm suburb. Cursed with a page-boy haircut and a dribbling nose, he sits alone in his estate's snowy playground every night, fantasising revenge on the school bullies who harass him every day. It looks as if we're in for a gloomy social drama, but then we see a haggard middle-aged man (Per Ragnar) calmly slit someone's throat in the woods nearby, and it seems as if Let the Right One In is going to be a thriller. Meanwhile, Oskar meets a new neighbour, a girl his own age called Eli (Lina Leandersson), and the film veers towards a very different genre. Anyone who wants the mystery to unfold at the careful pace the director intended should probably stop reading now.

When it comes to Mexican food I confess to being a complete addict. The cuisine from the south of the country is as far away from your average Tex-Mex fare as you can get. From the wonderful chocolate-chilli concoction known as mole, to the throat-burning, eye-watering habanero chillies, this part of Mexico is full of culinary treats for the brave of palate and adventurous at heart.

A Faroe Islander whose distinctive, idiosyncratic tone compares to fellow "Northern Lights" artists such as Stina Nordenstam, Bjork and Sigur Ros.
Teitur Lassen is an intriguing writer and a moving singer whose performances on The Singer wreak a kind of understated but devastating passion comparable to Anthony & The Johnsons. Despite having recorded several albums since 2003 – he spent a few frustratingly unappreciated years with Universal before opting for a more self-determined route – The Singer is, to my knowledge, his first UK release, albeit a year later than most other territories.
