This series is a typical cozy mystery series set in the Scottish Highlands. The local copper in a small village is considered lazy by many because he doesn't want to be promoted away from his home town, and in the pursuit of that goal he allows his rather stereotypical idiot superintendent to take the credit for investigations that he solves. Hamish Macbeth is rather like a male and younger version of Miss Marple, solving the crimes mostly by knowing his people and doggedly asking questions. This series isn't as entertaining as the Agatha Raisin books by the same author but is equally well written and the plots keep you turning pages.
