bookshelves: witty, mystery

While I find this series about a disfunctional family of detectives very funny, and I like Lutz' writing style, something doesn't sit right for me with these books. Isabel, our main character, has a number of issues that are played for laughs - I think she's supposed to be amusingly flawed. But the obsessive stalking, the drinking, the screwing up of the lives of people around you... I don't know. I still enjoyed the story, but Isabel's life is such a complete disaster, sometimes I wonder why I'm laughing at it.
