DEPARTMENT OF SENSITIVE CRIMES

ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH    Book Number: 87173    Product format: Hardback

We are excited to have this new 2019 hardback by the ever-popular writer, a new Detective Varg novel. 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' introduced us to Scandi noir. Now welcome to Alexander McCall Smith's world of Scandi blanc. Ulf Varg works in Malmö's Department of Sensitive Crimes. Like all Scandinavian detectives he has had his issues. In his case these include his unresolved feelings for his colleague Anna, his impatience over the seeming incompetence of his irritating colleague Blomquist, and his concerns for the health of his hearing-impaired dog, Martin, the only dog in Sweden (and possibly all Scandinavia) who is able to lip-read (in Swedish). Ulf is called upon to investigate a bizarre attack on a market trader, the disappearance of a handsome man who may or may not exist, and the affairs of a variety of young female students whose relationships with one another leave a great deal to be desired. Ulf and his team come to realise that the world is a puzzling place, lycanthropy (werewolfism) exists, and fish might have something to teach us. Tongue-in-cheek talent. 227pp.
