Shirley Henderson's six best books

Shirley Henderson is a Scottish actor who played Jude in Bridget Jones’s Diary, Moaning Myrtle in the Harry Potter film series, and appeared in Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting. She stars in Todd Solondz’s Life During Wartime.

She named her six best books for the Daily Express. One novel on the list:
Case Histories by Kate Atkinson

I loved the title of this book. I wanted the story to be full of crimes from the past that are yet to be solved, dark secrets revealed and everyone and everything in the stories somehow connected. It was all that I wished for and more, a brilliant read.
