really liked it
bookshelves: mysteries, turkey
Read in November, 2011

I enjoyed this mystery for a variety of reasons, mostly the breezy style, the setting and the cultural exposition. The depiction of both the Turkish and the German police as either incompetent, corrupt or uncaring bothered me because it was unrealistic as was the way the main protagonist Kati has of making a living. She has the only crime book bookstore in Istambul that is run in such a haphazard fashion it is amazing it stays open, but it seems her life is haphazard as well. Somehow the book worked for me.
