3,5 stars. Very entertaining. A typical English murder mystery. All the ingredients were there: a detective with a sad love interest in his past, his sidekick with his weird idiosyncrasies, the irritating bossy old lady, the very clever noble man and last but not least the difficult superior who in the end takes credit for solving the murders. Somewhat cliché, but that happens to be what I like about reading a cosy mystery. So no problems there. I loved Jury's interaction with the locals, especially with the children and the descriptions of the outside and the snow falling down. Furthermore the novel is very funny and well written. My only doubt: the plot. It fell flat. The end really didn't surprise me at all but somehow I didn't mind all that much.
