Praise

“Cheerful or melancholy, irritated or resigned, Detective Varg gives the reader more dry wit, inspired whimsy and comic pleasure than any other Swedish investigator in the business.”
—Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
 
“McCall Smith’s deceptively sharp wit is ever-present. . . . There is much to enjoy in this book.”
The Scotsman (UK)
 
“Alexander McCall Smith makes the irrelevant relevant. . . .[a] witty tongue-in-cheek examination of the routine.”
The Charlotte Sun
 
“McCall Smith’s great gift is making you shelve your genre-honed expectations and accept his people and stories as they are.”
Kirkus Reviews
