The Department of Sensitive Crimes

Alexander McCall Smith

Described by McCall Smith as ‘Scandi-Blanc’, a counterbalance to the bleakness of some Scandinavian crime fiction, this novel introduces Ulf Varg of the Malmö police. While his eccentric team investigate unusual cases, the detective discusses his depressed, lip-reading dog with his therapist.
