The Man with the Silver Saab: A Detective Varg Novel (3) (Detective Varg Series)

We rated this book:


Ulf Varg is head of the Department of Sensitive Crimes in the Malmo Police Department in Sweden. He investigates unusual crimes, and in this installment in the series, he has a particularly interesting case. Anders Kindgren is seeking his help in finding out who is trying to ruin his professional reputation as an art consultant. Varg and his team have a few suspects but it will take a little time to sort through them. Meanwhile, Varg is busy caring for his dog Martin, who has been in an accident with a squirrel, and thinking about the state of his own love life.

Alexander McCall Smith has once again produced a fun and captivating novel that is layered with a host of relationships and meandering themes revolving around ordinary life. As always, he is full of wit, humor, and elegant descriptions of the mundane and the extraordinary. I can’t think of another author who is as prolific and perceptive as Mr. Smith. All of which makes him a pleasure to read. And Ulf Varg is a memorable character that I’m sure we will meet again in another installment.
