L'Armée Furieuse - Fred Vargas


I had all but given up on detective novels, but I think I just changed my mind on that!

F. Vargas differs greatly from the American / British / Scandinavian mold; the cliché excentric, loner cop is apparently inescapable, but globally this is more Maigret-style, slow-motion detective work with a spicy touch of tongue-in-cheek humour. Entertaining!
