Read in January, 2007

Vargas has got to be the most distinctive contemporary crime writer in France. Her rules are simple: place and character are everything. Inspector Adamsberg is a holy fool, a resolutely irrational detective whose intuitions triumph where cold logic fails. Backed up by a host of secondary characters whose talents and foibles make of them an unruly but wholly sympathetic family, he muses his way through the convoluted crimes Vargas throws in his path.
