I found this a reminder of the difficulties of parenting. The mystery was good but by the last third I was having a hard time keeping the various detectives and other characters straight.

Be careful who you complain to...

I found this book fascinating, albeit disturbing. I had a hard time putting it down and finished it late late one night. A strange story but one I sadly found believable.

Another great Dept Q book with an involved crime mystery, lots of humor, and poor old Detective Carl and his problems with women. Love, love, loved it.

Excellent! Lots of day to day Swedish life and well woven glimpses of life during WWII along with many possible choices for the murderer(s)!

“In Ireland, you go to someone's house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you're really just fine. She asks if you're sure. You say of course you're sure, really, you don't need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don't need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn't mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it's no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.

In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don't get any damned tea.

I liked the Irish way better.”
C.E. Murphy, Urban Shaman
