This Night's Foul Work - Fred Vargas

Not all detective writers are capable of depicting what looks like everyday police routine and then imperceptibly spicing it up with tiny portions of eccentricity, the usual serial killers, a hint of supernatural folklore, plus a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour!

My favourite so far was 'The Ghost-Riders of Ordebec' (L'Armée Furieuse) but this comes a good second best! 
(And I'm not just saying that because I have connections to Normandy.) 
(At least, I don't think I am.)
